Adolfo Kaminsky: –Paris 1944 – 1955


The work of Adolfo Kaminsky, who risked his life as a resistance fighter forging documents and photographs during the German occupation of France, is finally being exhibited in Paris at the Galerie Lina Davidov.

A prolific photographer, Kaminsky took his first artistic photograph in 1944, the day after the liberation of Paris, and never put down his camera again.

Passionate and meticulous, he kept sixty years of negatives without ever showing them to anybody. The work on display here is but a small fraction of his vast oeuvre. In the heart of Saint Germain des Prés, the Galerie Lina Davidov is presenting Kaminsky’s work from 1944 to 1955, some of which has been printed for the first time.

The Paris we see is melancholic, with old men and women wandering along lonely streets. From the flea market in Saint-Ouen to the neon lights of Pigalle, Kaminsky photographed faces, shadows, lights, elegance and the margins of society.
