A few months ago I received an email from a curator who was working on an exhibition for a gallery in France. He asked me if I wanted to submit some of my photos I took in Colombia for this exhibition. After freaking out a bit and wondering if he was talking to the right person, I finally agreed. I mean… obviously I would say yes but being asked in the first place was a bit of a shock that I had to digest first.

Since Paris is close enough and this would be my first international photo exhibition, I definitely had to go to the vernissage. Also, a weekend in Paris… what’s not to love about that?! So two weeks ago, I flew over for an extended weekend.

The exhibition called “Street Sans Frontieres” was on for 3 days and was held at the Galerie Joseph Turenne. I’m still overwhelmed with how many people came to visit and have a look. It was a great success and felt amazing as well as surreal to see my images on the wall next to so many beautiful photos – some of which were taken by photographers whose work I’ve been following for a while already.

The opening night was really busy so I decided to go back the next day and see how the gallery looked without people in it – and still it seemed like visitors could not get enough. To be fair, it was a beautifully curated and organised exhibition.

And of course, when in Paris… you gotta enjoy the city. So I did. I made it my mission to find good coffee and luckily succeeded. Even with oat milk! Below are a few photos I took while exploring the city.

On another note, I’m still shooting film but I’m a little behind on my analogue stories on the blog. I’m waiting to fill my current roll of film so I can send of my April and May photos. That should hopefully be sorted soon so if you like my film photos, please stay tuned.
