From the French Portrait to the Californian Landscape This photography exhibit combines the works of two photographers, Susanna Patras (USA) and Sabine Le Varlet (France) who present two very different visions in photography: one of the abstract minimalism and the other, called “duo”, is by pairing together a museum painting, usually a portrait, with a photograph that are similar in some way.The exhibit will be open at Dava Gallery 77 in Piatra Neamt, Romania from March 20 – April 15, 2018. The opening reception will be at 4:00PM on March 20,
