Arlington & Reims : Sister Cities
Photographers: John Babineau of Arlington, Virginia and Cécile Bethléem of Reims, France
January 23 – March 28, 2009
Presented by Arlington Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Office of the City of Reims, France
Opening Reception, Thursday, January 22, 6 - 9 p.m.
Book Signing and Discussion with both photographers: Thursday, March 5, 7 - 9 p.m.
Exhibition book author Didier Rousselet writes, “Two cities glance at each other, or rather each city invites one of its artists to serve as its eye on the other. A photographer comes from Reims to glance at Arlington; another comes from Arlington to do the same in Reims. And each of them returns home with his or her rich crop of photographs revealing overlooked features and hidden truths.”
This exhibition will showcase the results of this photo exchange, and a book highlighting the work of both photographers will be available for purchase.
