My next exhibition about the full traverse of Nepal on foot on the Great Himalaya Trail is taking place in my hometown, Gérardmer, from the 20th of September to the 8th of October.

The story of my adventure on the Great Himalaya Trail has been published in a French Magazine called OUTDOOR GO!.

The article, written by Pierre Sahuc, retraces my full traverse of Nepal from East to West and is illustrated by a few of my pictures.

You can find here a link to the website of this young but well-edited magazine full of fascinating stories and informations about the outdoors.

May – June 2010
at Bar Le Grattoir
in Gérardmer (France)

My exhibition “Travel in the Land of the Long White Cloud” was once more put up, this time in my favourite bar in my hometown, “Le Grattoir”, an amazing little place where live music happens every week-end.

The owners Joe and Pascal generously offered to put up my pictures on the walls of their place. For the occasion (and for the sake of economy), I had built myself all the frames necessary out of cardboard, and painted them. I was delighted to see a few bands from NZ playing in the bar, with my pictures around them.

5th – 20th of May 2010

at Maison de la Culture et des Loisirs
Gérardmer (France)

This exhibition took place in the “MCL” (House of Culture and Leisure) which, working with the town of Gérardmer, initiates and develops educational, cultural and socio-cultural activities. They generously provided the space to display my pictures and offered frames. I travelled in California for two months in October and November 2009, and this exhibition showed the pictures I took during this trip. It was a great privilege and a wonderful feeling to be able to present my work in my hometown.
