Expats en Photo

I recently met with a photographer in Lyon who's showing some recent work, parallel to 'US Today After' exposition.

Her name is Rose-Marie Loisy and you can visit her website here.

Rose interviewed, then photographed, five Americans living in Lyon, including myself.

She wanted to convey a sense of what it was like for us, as expatriates, to make the transition to living in France.

What was challenging? What was fun? What was new and interesting?  Not surprisingly, food and language came out the dominant themes.

You can see Rose's photos at the atelier des Moirages in Lyon's 1st district every Wednesday from 5 to 7pm and on Fridays and Saturdays from 2 to 7pm until October 30th.
