A French heritage on the move

Every year, France’s flourishing cultural scene sees a steady stream of museum openings, ambitious renovation plans for monuments, and brand new festivals.

Over a series of 35 diptychs, a fascinating panorama unfolds

France eMotion – The animated journey is the fruit of a close collaboration between Atout France, the Institut français and exhibition curator Muriel Enjalran. Four photographers from around the globe — Ishola Akpo of Benin, Edu Monteiro of Brazil, David Schalliol of the United States, and Lourdes Segade of Spain — were asked to travel to different parts of France during the summer of 2017 to photograph 35 cultural attractions.

Animated pictures

To bring these photographs to life, French artists Julie Chheng and Thomas Pons created an animated character that changes form as it moves through the images: a touch of augmented reality that can be viewed with the help of a free and easy to use mobile app.
