PARIS: Lumiere Exhibition @ The Grand Palais

Back to Paris for a rendezvous with my wife Susan at the marvelous Lumiere exhibition at the Grand Palais. The Lumiere brothers are larger than life contributors to the worlds of the cinema and photography, inventing, amongst other things the cinematographe and the first color photography process, the autochrome plate. The installation, in one of the enormous Grand Palais spaces, is bathed in blue light and very beautifully done. Sadly closed as of mid-June.
