French writer Marcel Proust used to correctly say: “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” In short, otherness is the best change of scene ever. This explains why art is the best way to travel without even leaving the city! Paris welcomes numerous free photography exhibitions so that we can all explore the world and discover new points of view… in summer, don’t we all look for a breath of fresh air?
