. Duane Michals
American photographer Duane Michals is presenting an exclusive series of ten works as a tribute to the French writers who have influenced his life. Starting with typically French, anonymous old photographs, Michals, using paint, collage and text, recreates unique and colorful works, a Surrealist wink from an American in Paris.
. Simone Kappeler
In 1981, this Swiss photographer spent four months driving across the US in an old Gran Torino. She took pictures with different cameras: a Diana, a Polaroid SX-70, a Hasselblad. These bright and colorful pictures, rediscovered in 2010, offer a personal representation of what the United States was like 30 years ago.
. Chema Madoz
Chema Madoz taught himself photography during the Spanish countercultural movement known as La Movida. He composes his photographs using a vocabulary of objects which he combines, reworks, assembles and compares, arriving at unexpected results in the realm of the surreal and the absurd.
