Paris photos I

Contemporary art in the Louvre

One nice feature of the Louvre is how contemporary art is included in the middle of some of the galleries. Along with these statues, there was a huge polished silver mirror installation in one of the Egyptian galleries.

Marble sculpture in the Louvre

Brass and marble sculptures are my favourite form of visual art.

Painting in the Louvre

It is interesting to watch living artists working from the examples provided by dead and venerated ones.

Napoleon III apartments

Along with art and historical artifacts, the Louvre includes the apartments of Napoleon III. This adds something like a palace tour to the whole experience.

Graffiti near the Louvre

Even the graffiti near the Louvre is none too bad.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.
