From Brazil to Madagascar, Xavier Roy has captured precious moments of life. Through the eyes and attitudes of the people he photographed, we can appreciate his feeling for those who cross his path.

« Xavier Roy loves people, talks to them, meets them, smiles to them and then eventually takes their portraits… » said about him  the photographer Bernard Plossu.

When he met Marie Virginie Dru, who sculpts women and children from Africa and elsewhere, the desire to pool their talent  was obvious. Marie Virginie, once herself a photographer before discovering sculpture, was seduced by Xaviers’s photos with the strong impression of having already met some of his subjects and recognize them….

When Xavier asks her to give a third dimension of his photos the substitution begins…

This exhibition is like a diversion, a link between their two eyes that focus on faces and silhouettes. A common desire to show the people represented on the photos and the sculptures are being presented simultaneously.
