Louis Faurer at the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation
Wednesday 23rd November 2016 (Free event)
The works of American photographer Louis Faurer will be exhibited at the The Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation this November.
This is an extraordinary opportunity to discover the works of this artist who has not exhibited his photographs in France since 1992. Born in Philadelphia, Louis Faurer (1916-2001) moved to New York in 1947, drawn to the busy life of Times Square, he finds solitude amongst the crowds, always from a distance, with no mercy.
Reporting and journalism hardly interests him; Faurer delves more to the fragility of things, the unconscious revealed. He was commissioned by prestigious magazines like Flair, Harpers Bazaar, Glamour, Mademoiselle that created a feigned contempt for him, a wrenching paradox, that only humour appeared to overcome. These works allow him to both live and pursue his personal project in the streets of New York.
