About This Project

Cherbourg-Octeville in the night, the city of the film “the umbrellas of Cherbourg”

Series of photographs of Cherbourg-Octeville  by night, taken during the night around the port of Cherbourg.

During my brief stay in the city of Cherbourg, located in the department of the Manche, France, I had the chance to go take pictures of Cherbourg by night, with a photographer living in this city. We been around the “Bassin du Commerce” with our cameras and our tripod, Then we go next to the Battery du Roule, located on the “mountain du Roule”. The “Roule Mountain” rises to 112 meters, this is a very great view of Cherbourg.

I spent some very pleasant hours in the city famous film The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (French: Les Parapluies de Cherbourg) which is a 1964 French/German international co-production musical film directed by Jacques Demy, starring Catherine Deneuve and Nino Castelnuovo.
