Sunday 7 December 2014


In November, photography month in France, we attended two nice photographic exhibitions: one of the complete work of Roman Vishniac in Paris, and another one of Martin Parr called Paris, in Lille. Both worth visiting and both ending in January, so you still have time and the free days to do it!

After New York (International Center of Photography, 2013) and Amsterdam (Joods Historisch Museum, April-August 2014), the Musée d’art et d’histoire du Judaïsme is showing Roman Vishniac: from Berlin to New York, 1920-1975. Bringing together some 220 works, many never previously shown, it completely re-evaluates Vishniac’s photography from his beginnings in Berlin until the post-war years in the United States. The expo will be on until 25th January 2015.

Martin Parr's Paris shows us in his peculiar and always refreshing way, a selection of Parisian people, events, traditions, places and clichés. The Festival en plein air, Paris fashion Week, Paris plague, or a game of petanques they're all observed in detail to capture and reveal the absurd, the sublime or the ridicule.

The expo is on until the 21st December, Also, la Maison de la photographie of Lille is a great space that even though is not right next to the city center is well worth a visit!
