On the 14th of September within the framework of the Ninth 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.

Arsenyev visited friends of Perez such stars as: Liza Minnelli, Ornella Muti, Ingeborga Dapkunaite, Larissa Belobrova (co-author and organizer of the event), as well as the Governor of Primorsky Territory Sergey Darkin.
