Eyes Wild Open highlights the relationships that exist between several generations of photographers whose practice is as intuitive as it is abrupt or transgressive. Initiated after the second world war by pioneers such as Robert Frank, William Klein or the founders of the legendary Japanese magazine Provoke, this singular approach to photography has stood the test of time, and its heritage remains particularly productive in contemporary creation.
The exhibition brings together the work of nearly thirty international photographers :
Robert Frank, Ed van der Elsken, William Klein, Daido Moriyama, Takuma Nakahira, Ishiuchi Miyako, Christer Strömholm, Anders Petersen, Dolorès Marat, Paulo Nozolino, Antoine d’Agata, Klavdij Sluban, Michael Ackerman, Jehsong Baak, JH Engström, Olivier Pin-Fat, Tiane Doan Na Champassak, Lorenzo Castore, Arja Hyytiäinen, Jacob Aue Sobol, Alisa Resnik, Gilles Roudière, Stéphane Charpentier, Gabrielle Duplantier, Yusuf Sevinçli, Sohrab Hura et Sébastien Van Malleghem.
Curator : Marie Sordat
The exhibition is accompanied by a book, edited by André Frère Editions. The exhibition has received the extraordinary support from the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
