Visite virtuelle de notre stand à PARIS PHOTO
PARIS PHOTO 2015 VU PAR W.M.HUNT
At the fair itself, I am always struck by the necessity of visiting Philippe & Marion Jacquier’s Gallerie Lumieres Des Roses. I love that all the PP veterans must come by this stand to really look at photography where authorship is not primary. It is all about the photograph itself. There was a good 19th C. Pierrot portrait ( Anonyme, Le mime Debureau – série Têtes d’expression par Adrien Tournachon) but my favorite was carbon print of a chorus line-like arrangement of codfish with tiny boys or men, (“Morues geantes, Ecosse 1908”). There is a statement of purpose that the gallery explores “the immense and fertile field of anonymous photography to single out images that the eye – regardless of the signature – will identify as holding an intrinsic value, freedom, a force of evocation or any other reason for which there will not necessarily be a word” is perfect. Freedom, indeed.
