About This Group

A visit to France is a cultural experience which, by definition, is both timeless and enigmatic; the way of life and the unfailing courtesy that people seem to display towards one another. This group has been formed mainly as a celebration of the architecture that is to be found in La belle France.

We would wish to see some excellent work with real thought given to light and composition and an absolute minimum of manipulation; if in doubt artists should refer to people such as Ansel Adams, Eddie Adams, Robert Capa, Robert Doisneau, Walker Evans, Lewis Hine, Dorothea Lange, Joe Rosenthal, Eduard Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand et al.

Gustave’s iconic and ubiquitous memorial is just that, we do not consider that it represents French Architecture.

Please join us and enjoy..
