From 6 june to 6 september 2020 : Joël Klinger, Timeless. Skies and châteaux
In the land of the châteaux, our eyes gladly linger over the work of Renaissance builders and the surrounding landscapes, but do we ever take the time to look up at the skies above? This summer, photography and astronomy come together at Villandry.
For over twenty years, Joël Klinger has been observing the sky through his lens and scanning the Milky Way that soars above the châteaux of the Loire Valley. From dusk to dawn, he captures precious, almost imperceptible moments, such as Amboise under a shower of stars, or Villandry in the glowing evening sun.
With a camera by way of a telescope, Klinger invites us to take a fresh look at the majestic heritage of the Loire.
