Rendez-vous Photo Days N°5 : Visit of the Balzac Rotunda

Literature in photography


Thanks to Photo Days, CultureSecrets offers you a photographic trip in Paris with several physical appointments, in small groups, from January 16th to February 6th.

For this fifth meeting, Photo Days opens the doors of the mysterious Balzac Rotunda. Built by Baroness Rothschild in the garden of what was once the writer's Parisian home, this rotunda has just been renovated. For its reopening, it hosts the Suzanne Tarasiève Gallery which exhibits the works of the artist Alkis Boutlis. These spellbinding photographs are directly inspired by Balzac's mystical novels. 

Guided by Emmanuelle de l'Ecotais, doctor in art history specializing in photography and director of Photo Days, discover the works of the young artist who links photography and literature.
