Basilica Saint-Denis – the pediment of the crypt highlighted

Our goal was to make the excerpt from the gospel visible by only a small glow and to reinforce the reflection of the cross of light which crosses the altar and projects into the crypt. The altar of the basilica, created by the artist Vladimir Zbynovsky and composed of a stone plinth from Armenia, is topped with a glass dome which contains a cut-out in the shape of a cross and a lens to make possible this effect.

Autochromes for Lumière des Roses

Société Lumière was asked to highlight the Autochromes “Fleurs” (circa 1920) for the Lumière des Roses gallery, Paris

For the collection of the Lumière des Roses gallery, we have highlighted a panorama of the 8 autochromes. The eight images represent the slides that the projectionists projected to explain the technique of the manufacturing process of the autochromes. They show (from left to right) the different pigmentations of the starch used to make the autochrome.
