Photographers, where are they ?


Story by JR

The "Unframed - Ellis Island" project is about bringing alive the memory of Ellis Island, the entry point to America for millions of immigrants. Coming from all over the world, leaving their belongings, their family and their past behind them, with the fear that they may be sent back to it, the presence of these people who have shaped the modern American identity can still be felt in the buildings, although abandoned for the past 70 years.

Jeffrey Silverthorne

Ce somptueux Beaux-Livre présente une vision originale du ballet de l'Opéra de Paris, à travers l'objectif de Pierre-Elie de Pibrac. Une première partie de photographies noir et blanc raconte le quotidien du corps de ballet, des salles de répétitions à la scène, durant une saison...

 

Guano is the result of a particular phenomenon. In the past, it was called «the white gold» of South America. With the currents of the Pacific ocean, many small fish come and gather along the Peruvian coast, becoming the main food supply for thousands of sea birds living on the Chincha islands....

 
Denis Dailleux, qui vit au Caire, ne cesse de montrer le peuple égyptien, dont il est tombé amoureux voilà quinze ans. « Mère et fils » est certainement sa série la plus personnelle et la plus troublante. Avec pudeur et délicatesse, il nous emmène dans l’intimité de familles où...

 

Entretien réalisé en 2011 à la Galerie VU J. Silverthorne nous guide sur le chemin de sa trajectoire photographique au travers du regard qu'il pose sur quelques uns de ses clichés. Actif depuis la fin des années 1960, il multiplie les séries sur des sujets extrêmes : un abattoir, une...
