To film an exhibition, what a challenge... what to film ? Scenography, visitors, works ? But how ? How, in a film, to do justice to the works, which are even essential in an exhibition ? How not to film that exhibition itself, which would deprive it of its purpose ? How not to do that “fly over” works ? How fully offer them to the view of the audience of the film ? This film is a proposal of a filmic principle for an exhibition of photographs.
