PHOTOQUAI BIENNALE: “We are Family”
In its fifth edition, the photography biennale Photoquai sets itself up on the banks of the Seine, on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower and in several other public spaces across the city, to display the unedited works of forty non-European photographers. This year’s exhibition is open until 22nd November and revolves around a reflection on the notion of family: indeed, what does it mean to “make a family”?
