Photography is an extraordinary visual medium that connects the viewer with the subject through the eyes of the photographer. It's unique in many ways, but the power the photographer wields in how the subject is represented should not be underestimated. It is what makes the stories of those behind the lens so fascinating. So let's meet the people and artists who created the photos of the exhibition:

From France, near Paris, Patrick Drouet pursued photography as a teenager by taking village landscapes, portraits, and flowers. Travels abroad kickstarted his making souvenirs for family and friends. He also shoots monuments, animals, or street all with his Sony A77 and A58. Capturing the shot in one click is his challenge.
