HEROES OF JULY - the 100th edition of the tour de france

08 July to 01 August 2014
Alliance Française Eildon Gallery

Opening Tue 08 July, 6.30pm to 8pm, Free admission

As the 2014 Tour de France is about to kick-off, the Alliance Française de Melbourne is very delighted to announce its new upcoming exhibition by French-born photographer, Jean-Pierre Ronco with exclusive videos and interviews by Christophe Mallet (SBS French Radio).

Heroes of July’ will present some of Jean-Pierre Ronco's best photos taken during the 100th edition of the Tour de France.  Last year, for the first time in its history, the Tour started off in the beautiful Corsica Island, and led its followers into even more incredible landscapes such as the Mont St Michel, Mont Ventoux, Alpe-d’Huez and Paris.

All along the 'Grande Boucle', Jean-Pierre Ronco successfully managed to capture through his camera lens the many emotions of these Heroes of July: pain, passion, struggle and determination.

This exhibition will take you even deeper into this iconic race thanks to a set of videos and exclusive interviews in French and in English conducted by Christophe Mallet from SBS French Radio.
