Exhibition: Emmet Gowin

Thanks to the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, Parisians can discover the work of Emmet Gowin, an American photographer little known in France. He began his career with very simple photographs inspired by daily-life scenes: adults in the street, children playing outside, and car drivers. In the late 1960s, Emmet Gowin' divides his work into two different tendencies: family portraits, and coverage of landscapes that have been devastated by men or natural disasters. This exhibition presents 130 photographs, covering 40 years of work by the artist.
