LOIC LAGARDE, FRENCH PHOTOGRAPHER:
- First of all, the reason why I came to Astana is because my photos exhibited in the French pavilion. This gave me great opportunity to discover Kazakhstan and the capital Astana and I have time to photograph playground. I enjoy to discover Astana with my western French eyes. I saw a lot of angular buildings similar to Paris.
The photographer is planning to visit other cities of Kazakhstan, take photos of natural landscapes and then to showcase them in Paris. Best photos dedicated to Astana will be published in the photo album after EXPO 2017. The album will include Lagarde's works too.
