Controversial pictures go on show in Paris


A former news photographer has produced a series of controversial pictures which draw on the paintings of the Old Masters to make searing comments about the big issues of today.

The exhibition of photographer Gerard Rancinan uses his work to take a fresh look at contemporary issues like immigration, war and obesity.

The show is now in Paris, but is expected to travel to New York, London and Saint Petersburg.

David Chazan reports.
