The PHPA prize on display at the Esther Woerdehoff gallery and at the Belle Juliette Hotel
For the 2012 edition, there will be two separate exhibitions . From September 6-29, at the Esther Woerdehoff gallery, and at the Hôtel la Belle Juliette from October 1 through November 5, 2012. “We wanted to continue working with the Esther Woerdehoff gallery where such renowned artists as Camille Claudel and Constantin Brancusi once worked. It was only logical to continue the exhibition at the Belle Juliette Hotel, a superbe location providing visibility for contemporary photography in its exhibition hall that tells the story of an exceptional woman and patron of the arts, Madame Récamier.” Alain Bisotti
