French visitor's tour

"My name is Christel. I am 25 years old. I finished my studies in France two years ago. I decided to come over because I wanted to improve my English. I've been in Brighton five months and I think I'll stay at least one or two years.

When you asked me to take some pictures of Brighton, I just went for a walk and when something caught my eye I shot it: funny things that I have never seen, picturesque things, colours, and architecture, or things that remind me of France."

The French Visitor's Tour was created for the 'My Brighton' museum exhibit, launched in 1995. Christel has now gone back to live in France.
