Exhibition Kertész - Lartigue. A step aside
"Because his photos are cousins of mine, because in his memory there are twin residues of mine, he speaks to me as if I were his brother." - Lartigue, The Eye of Memory, 1932-1985
In the early 1960s, the Museum of Modern Art in New York devoted monographic exhibitions to two photographers: Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986) and André Kertész (1894-1985). Described by one as "the greatest amateur of the 20th century" and by the other as "the inventor of photojournalism," each has a unique aesthetic. However, both of them have the ability to take a step aside from the major trends in photography.
The exhibition highlights these two personalities with parallel careers by presenting 160 photographs (20 vintages - 140 modern prints) and numerous archival documents.
This exhibition is co-produced with the Médiathèque du patrimoine et de la photographie (MPP) and the Lartigue Donation. Curator: Marion Perceval, director of the Lartigue Donation, and Matthieu Rivallin, assistant to the head of the photography department at the MPP.
