« Clothes don’t make the man » says a popular French proverb with the same meaning than « don’t judge a book by its cover. » But from the 1st to the 31th of October, the Musée de Bretagne contradicts this famous saying through its exhibition When Clothes Make the Man. Photographs of work wear. Indeed, when it’s about work clothes, appearances are not always deceptive – photo collections of the Musée de Bretagne reveal the codes and symbols of work clothes from 1850 to the present. It invited the photographer Dominique Delpoux (VU’ Agency) in residence. For more than 20 years, this inhabitant of Albi, a city in southern France, has been making portraits of men and women in their daily environment. He regularly explores the sphere of work through documentary series where the social and identity role of work clothing is examined.
During his stay in Bretagne, Dominique Delpoux photographed thirty workers of the Rennes conurbation. Amateur sitters posed both in their work clothes and civil clothes to compose diptychs. After being shown on the fences of the construction site for the new metro line, eight of theses diptychs are presented at the Champs Libres. All the sitters work there, you might meet them !
