Here’s all the info.

Roger Schall – Paris in the 1930s

The Argentic Gallery (here) is showing a selection of beautiful black and white shots, most never seen before. You’ ve probably never seen Paris like this before.

And for the special intense south-west weekend event (on 22nd & 23rd April), the gallery is having a photo book sale, with prices from 10 euros to 1,000€.

Paolo Woods & Gabriele Galimberti – The Heavens: Annual Report

The Centre Assas (here) is hosting this exhibition showing what offshore tax havens look like, the aura of secrecy that surrounds them and the obscene levels of wealth of those involved.

It’s a project by Paolo Woods & Gabriele Galimberti, and a smart book of the project is available in English here.
