International Film Festival of Asia-Pacific region, "Pacific
Meridian" in Vladivostok, which was hold under the patronage of the
Primorsky Territory Administration, a personal exhibition of a
famous actor and director (and now a photographer) Vincent Perez
was successfully opened. His exposition author called "from
Vladivostok to Paris," and turned it into a series of genre
pictures, which depicts the world famous representatives of the
arts, movies, politicians, businessmen and government officials.
Vincent Perez captures them in a friendly informal atmosphere. In
addition to trying to catch an elusive moment, after each meeting,
photographer wrote one sentence, one thought, as a kind of result
of conversation that took place during taking these pictures.
Therefore each picture has its own introduction.
"Photos are devoted to Russian-French friendly relations, taken in
private, sometimes before going on stage, sometimes in between the
official events, sometimes in a friendly meeting, which, once, for
example, has developed into a demonstration of the elements of
martial arts (in the peaceful meaning of this word, there were no
injuries during the photography), as has happened with my friend
Mikhail Slipenchuk. I wanted to show people my creative look at
well-known figures of culture, sports and business in both
countries, with whom I have friendly relations. Mikhail in this
series, in my opinion, is a prominent representative of all three
directions, so I put his picture in the centre of the exhibition" -
shared his thoughts Vincent Perez at the opening ceremony.
