Professionals at your service…
Gilles Martin has over 30 years’ experience in the field of producing, setting up, and hiring photographic exhibitions. His clients include the French Senate, the Museums of Natural History of Lille, Bordeaux, Tours, Nantes, and Bayonne, as well as the most prestigious international photography and nature festivals.
His network (graphic designers, editors, photo laboratories, and artisans) means that he can set up exhibitions for you on a turnkey basis.
The exhibition uses images to take us from one continent to another and into the extraordinarily varied world of small beings: insects, of course, as well as flowers and plants, snakes, lizards, chameleons, poison-dart frogs, micro-mammals, etc.
This æsthetic and educational exhibition is designed to present the infinitely small in large photographic prints whilst giving an idea of scale. That is what is behind the title “MicroMégas”, a philosophical tale” (1752) in which Voltaire – drawing inspiration from “Gulliver” – takes a new approach to Blaise Pascal’s theme of the two infinites: the Micro and the Mega.
Exhibition intended for an indoor presentation. The spectacular, educational exhibition offers highly original scenography, which enables spectators to draw immediate parallels between the Micro and the Mega. Each print displayed is self-supporting and comes fitted with a magnifying lamp. The magnifying lamp presents the photo caption and a visual of the subject photographed, to give the scale. Fitted with a jointed arm, the magnifying lamp can be raised and lowered to make it accessible to adults and children.
