His latest exhibition “Only Humans” comprises 150 photos taken in around forty different African countries, with some hard-hitting images…
If you go up to the roof of the Grande Arche de la Défense this summer, you’ll not only get one of the most unusual views of Paris (and the suburbs) from over 100 metres in the air, but also have the chance to visit the dedicated exhibition space there, with 1,200m² dedicated to photojournalism.
Pascal Maitre seems a perfect fit for the space – taken over a period of forty years, his arresting photos of war, poverty and daily life completely unlike anything we know in Europe will open your eyes and make you feel grateful for what you’ve got.
And after the exhibition, don’t miss the spectacular view from the top of the Arche. The 100 metre-long promenade was recently renovated and now includes one deck in line with the Champs Elysées. Well worth seeing.
The exhibition Seulement humains (Only Humans) by Pascal Maitre is at the Grande Arche de La Défense (here) until 11th October 2018
Open every day from 10am-7pm (last ride up at 6.30pm)
Admission: 15€ / 12€ / 10€ / 7€ (includes visit to the roof)
