Spotlight: The city of Geneva

Not simple to create images in Geneva… even outdoors! With the city of London and Paris, it is one of the cities where getting authorizations could become a long and tough journey, which doesn’t always end well. Of course, you can do it the savage way as everybody does and do your images until you get kicked out or receive a fine… but on serious projects, you just can’t do that. Although chances of being caught are slim when you work with a tight crew, on bigger projects it is hard to get unnoticed. So to get all worries out of the way, I prefer the legal way even if sometimes I end up not having access to some locations. Nevertheless, I still want to thank all the people working for the city of Geneva, that have helped me to this day, because without them so of the following images wouldn’t exist.

I have been in the city a couple of times now, and it has always been fun. Before my next trip there I wanted to share with you a selection of the work I’ve done there so far :

Huge thanks to all these artists that trusted me for the images, people of Geneva… see you soon!

  1. Superbe photo que tu as fait à Genève, surtout au jardin botanique La prochaine fois il serait intéressant de faire en vielle ville. J’aimerai faire des photos de ce genre pour illustrer les plus coins de cette vile.

    Cette ville à plein de ressource en art qui sont méconnues, par contre pour trouver des autorisations pour réaliser de l’art contemporain comme la photo, c’est la croix et la bannière. Pour l’instant j’ai eu de la chance de ne pas avoir eu de problème….

    • Il faudrait que j’y pose mes valises quelques temps, il y a tant à faire ! Souvent je n’y reste que 48h, donc pas évident… et avec le COVID désormais c’est un véritable enfer pour les autorisations.
