Martine Frank Exhibition - Fondation Henri Cartier Bresson
dim. 20 janvier 2019 à 15:00
"A photograph isn’t necessarily a lie, but nor is it the truth. It’s more of a fleeting, subjective impression. What I most like about photography is the moment that you can’t anticipate: you have to be constantly watching for it, ready to welcome the unexpected." The first exhibition for the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation in the Marais is dedicated to Martine Franck. Born in Antwerp in 1938, Franck grew up in England and the United States and it was during a trip to the East in 1963 that she discovered photography. Back in Paris, she became an independent photographer and collaborated with major American magazines, Life, Fortune, the New York Times and Vogue, with reports and portraits of artists. She participates in the creation of agencies Vu, then Viva. Franck also photographed the adventure of the troupe of the Théâtre du Soleil from their emergence. In 1970, she married Henri Cartier-Bresson and she later joined the Magnum group, which continues to promote her work.
