It just happened.
Discovering a place for the very first time. How I love this feeling... Not expecting anything. Being ready for everything. And then, pure joy...
Two projects drove me to Saint-Louis, USA. One at the World Chess Hall Of Fame - the exhibition "A Queen Within" -, one at Philip Slein Gallery - the exhibition "With The Mind" -.
Rarely did I enjoy such a warm welcome. Discovering Saint-Louis, a beautiful city filled with art and French influences, guided by truly wonderful people was a unique moment. Or : moments, indeed.
Here is Saint-Louis, a few glances through the city.
Enjoy ! (& stay tuned, more coming soon...)
