Foodography by Martin PARR
Beaugrenelle Paris has always tried to place itself above the more typical shopping malls and create a more cultural experience. This is a place to shop, dine and enjoy some great aesthetics. The new Foodographie exhibition within the centre brings these elements even closer together. As shoppers ride the escalators and walk the floors between stores and cafes, they are greeted with large, bold photographic images of food.
These bold prints are the work of British photographer Martin Parr. The aim with the XXL photos – all 26 of them – is to show a range of meals and food-related fads in glorious technicolour. It is impossible not to marvel at the images and then crave something sweet. Unfortunately, the accompanying tester sessions have finished for the summer. But, shoppers can still enjoy the images right until the 3rd of September. This is the ideal way to brighten your next summer shopping trip in the city.
From June 30th until September 3rd, 2018
Opening days and hours:
Opened Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 8.30 pm and Sunday from 11 am to 7 pm.
