Georges Rousse

Georges Rousse, Vitry, 2007

Occassionally, Visual Resources is challenged by the limited availability of an artist's work. The French artist and photographer Georges Rousse is one of those artists, but the link below is an excellent source for learning more about the Durham Project. We hope you will explore this to better understand the artist's work and how he creates.
