Perhaps France’s most important living photographer, Raymond Depardon (75 years old) has new exhibition – Traverser – at the Cartier-Bresson Foundation, very close to our hotels.

Here’s all the info.

Documenting France (and a lot of the rest of the world) has been Raymond Depardon’s passion for over 60 years. In photos and films, he shows us the everyday and the extraordinary, sometime apart, often together.

His new exhibition Traverser has four themes, with links between each pair:

La terre natale (homeland), with
Le voyage (journey), and
La douleur (pain), with
L’enfermement (confinement)

Through a hundred or so images, texts, films and documents, the exhibition is a journey though Depardon’s work, from his earliest photos to his vision today.

Les murs de la Fondation HCB changent de couleur pour la prochaine exposition « Raymond Depardon – Traverser » ! Du 13 septembre au 17 décembre venez traverser les espaces d’expositions et prendre connaissance du travail du photographe présenté sous quatre chapitres. Malheureusement, notre gif est en noir & blanc, il faudra donc patienter pour découvrir la nouvelle couleur ! 🙃The walls of the Fondation HCB change color for the next exhibition « Raymond Depardon – Traverser »! From September 13 to December 17, come and go through the exhibition spaces and learn about the work of the photographer presented in four chapters. Unfortunately, our gif is black and white, so we will have to wait to discover the new color! 🙃 #montage #photographie #raymonddepardon #newcolor #fondationhcb
