The exhibition, organized by Jeu de Paume Paris, brings together a selection of photographs from the French Culture and Communication Ministry’s Architecture and Heritage Médiathèque. The photographs belong to the celebrated artist André Kertész. A classics’ classic, André Kertész is an emblematic figure in photography history. In 1925, the artist moved to Paris, and, in 1984, he went as far as donating all his negatives and documents to the French state (the Photography Heritage Archive). The photographs included in the present exhibition, taken, by Kertész, with the keen understanding of the connoisseur, revolve around the figure of the reader, whether one glimpses him/her in a garden, on a bus, in a café, a library or a drawing room, on a balcony or in a bed, at school or at war, standing, sitting or lying, in another universe and in another temporal frame, which is not the here and now. The exhibition opened on Thursday, July 14, and is running until August 28.
