The Foreign Legion at the studio

Two years ago Hom had created an exhibition “Portrait of Legionaries”. The opening took place in the great hall of the former Palace of the Governors at the Sampiero Barracks, in the Upper Town of Calvi. At the start The meeting between the elite unit that is the 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment and Hom Nguyen, seemed improbable. And yet, at the chance of an exhibition one summer in the renovated Salt Tower in Calvi, this meeting took place. It was fusional, to the point that a real friendship was created with the Regiment and its corps commander Colonel Christophe de la Chapelle. This visit to the workshop was emotional, and it was a great moment of sharing.
