The Beaugeste Gallery in Shanghai is exhibiting, for the first time in China, the photographs of Bruno Barbey (b. 1941 in Morocco) taken between 1973 and 1980. Founded in 2007 by the critic and curator Jean Loh, the Beaugeste Gallery occupies the fifth floor of a building in the Tianzifang neighborhood, famous for its 1930s architecture, a remnant of the former French Concession in Shanghai. For any photography fan, the Beaugeste Gallery, although only a few square meters wide, is like an Ali Baba’s cave, with treasures ranging from unique prints by famous and emerging photographers to rare catalogs not on the market.
