Spotlight: The city of Toulouse

I knew nothing about Toulouse the first time I went there. The people, the food, the landmarks nothing came to my mind immediately when I heard or read the name of this city except the fact that the people call it “la ville rose” and  I also knew the music of a famous french singer/ songwriter named Claude Nougaro. After my very first visit, I knew that not giving this city a 2nd look was a huge mistake. Why didn’t I stop here before? Why have I never visited this beautiful city? Better late than never in 2016, during my RV French tour we finally spent a few days in town and knew we had to go back. Since then, I developed a couple of projects:

 

  1. Opération Prêt à poster; La Poste
  2. Back on youtube! 14 artists, 9 iconic locations in Toulouse Behind the scenes

 

If you ever visit the southwest of France, this city has to be on your list. I already feel that some of these images feel dated, so I hope to develop another series with a totally different approach. In the meantime, here is a selection of some of my favorite images made in Toulouse!
