Overview


If Francois Paolini feels "at home" in Las Vegas, it's because he has found here the possibility to create a world where man raises his eyes to the gods instead of keeping them fixed on the asphalt. Whether they depict a gold ingot, a dark pyramid that has dropped from a science-fiction sky, Legos for big kids or a concourse of giants, Paolini's photos are paintings of atmosphere that bring together in one image what the visitor has perceived without always analyzing, as well as a concentration of astonishing dreams for those who were not there. Las Vegas as shown by Paolini is the last sacred ode to the outrageness that this modern, materialistic, down-to-earth world has forgotten. What a wonderful tribute paid to Las Vegas for its Centennial Celebration.
