Call for entry to the exhibition
Faster !!!

The André Malraux du Bourget cultural center organizes its third international exhibition of photography without lens (pinhole, zone-plate, sieve) around the subject of transport.

Since the dawn of time, the man looked for all the means to transport itself in a speed superior to the one than his legs allowed it. He so invented and finalized the mechanical systems, used the driving strength of elements, made machines always more successful with technological means.
So automobiles, motorcycles, buses, planes or boats transport human beings and goods worldwide with a lot of often polluting energy, while cycles, rollers, skateboards allow us to move in an often more restricted perimeter but by guaranteeing a certain purity of the air.

Choose your means of transportation and tell in a coherent sequence from five to ten images how you transport yourselves from a point to the other one.
The size, the support and the arrangement of the images is free.

The exhibition will take place from March 6th till April 25th, 2009 in the CCAM of Le Bourget.
