In French artist Jean Bedez's graphite drawings, "pasts and presents interweave and we read man’s immemorial procession towards ruin. These strictly black-and-white works resonate with that “art of combat.” Each one becomes a chessboard on which religious, economic and political powers endlessly change places and the aura of sacredness."

On the surface Paris has all sorts of outstanding amenities, culture and top-notch regional food. However, below the surface Paris has a labyrinth of tunnels and catacombs to endlessly explore. CDK photography recently shot some long exposures in the tunnels that makes us want to buy a ticket tonight and get our butts over there.

Paris-based photographer Jean-François Rauzier's images are approximately 10,000 times the resolution of a normal photograph. The image remains extremely crisp even when blown up to 66 feet wide (two school buses). Rauzier began his career as a fashion photographer but had always longed to break out of the constraints of the industry. Realizing he could use digital photography to compose a grid of pictures, the artist went on to create these incredibly detailed panoramas.

A long-awaited event to start the new season: the third solo exhibition of works by Jules de Balincourt. His show, in our gallery in the Marais, has the beguiling title Blue Hours and includes fifteen new paintings. This ‘Michel Houellebecq’ of painting, as Jean-Marc Bustamante calls him, explores private themes that evoke architecture, travel, human migrations and artificial places, in a floating, idealised and escapist atmosphere with hints of a pervading vulnerability.
