Urban Focus

Maxime Disy / Étienne Pouvreau / Agathe Montel

Urban Focus is a photography project. Our aim is to photograph and map Saint-Etienne's abandoned industrial sites for cultural and/or artistic purposes. These sites are concealed, difficult to access. Our "game" is to find them, photograph them and share them. The image can reveal their potential. It aims to give those who see the pictures a feel for the place, so that they can immerse themselves in it as if they were there.
Mapping activities/workshops/talks/projection of films will accompany this exhibition.
