Laura Henno, Timmy and Kasey, Slab City (USA), 2018

Never before have we used photography so much to share our everyday lives. From family portraits to street photography, postcards to digital applications, this first program reveals how photographers, artists, amateurs and entrepreneurs have continually appropriated the medium to record, question and even glorify the banality of everyday life from the 19th century to the present day.

Emmanuelle Fructus

This free event, with its seven original exhibitions, is, above all, an opportunity to share a preview of the Institut pour la photographie’s project with you. The library, workshops, publishing exhibition, portfolios and evening openings will be opportunities to invite all audiences to discuss and experiment with photography, all of which we hope will be “extraORDINARY” moments!

LAURA HENNO / Radical Devotion

Since 2017, Laura Henno has explored the everyday life of Slab City, an encampment of marginalized individuals in the heart of the Californian desert. These images reflect the aesthetics of American documentary photography and reveal the human saga of the characters of this forgotten world.

THOMAS STRUTH / Portraits de famille

Thomas Struth gives us a glimpse of our relationship to everyday life in a resolutely crafted documentary approach. Begun in 1986, his portraits, which are both psychological and sociological, encourage us to take a new look at this predetermined social microcosm and revisit this traditional iconographic register.

THOMAS SAUVIN / Beijing World Park

The artist and collector’s new project is dedicated to the theme park created in 1993 in China to offer a fictional world tour with its miniature monuments. His collection of negatives is an opportunity to revisit the issue of tourism and our relationship to historical heritage.

GREETINGS FROM AMERICA

The postcard is a real social and cultural phenomenon of the 20th century. This new mode of illustrated, fast and inexpensive correspondence, with its international network of photographic image production and distribution, embodies the ambitions of modern Western society.
