Between 10 and 24 May, head down to Westin KL in Bukit Bintang to catch Vertical/Horizontal, Interieur/Exterieur, an exhibition by French photographer Françoise Huguier. Organised as part of the French Art and Film Festival, the exhibition showcases Huguier’s photos of “middle class lives” in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Bangkok.

Open 24 hours a day for viewing, the collection of images comprises expressive portraits of people and spaces that capture the personality of the three cities as seen from a foreign perspective. The project was started in 2010 and won Huguier the Prize of Photography from Fimalac in 2011.

There will also be film screenings this week as part of the French Art and Film Festival 2013 organised by Alliance Française in Kuala Lumpur. There is still time to see some award-winning films of recent years such as L’exercice de l’État (The Minister), Le prénom (What’s in a Name) and Un homme qui crie (A Screaming Man). The films are on limited screenings at GSC Midvalley, Pavilion and 1Utama until 12 May.
