“Photostories” exhibition by François Prost at Superette Gallery Paris

The exhibition by French photographer François Prost  will present 4 series produced between 2013 and 2017: After Party, Faubourg, Champs Élysées & Paris Syndrome. AfterParty recounts facades of French nightclubs, photographed in the light of day. These nightclubs, still in activity, are then under a different face: neon and other sulphurous attributes peculiar to the night atmosphere give way to a more standard and less glittery reality.
