An exhibition and book by Dominique Mirambeau, photos by Jean-Jacques Drivet, illustrations by Moebius.
It’s the story of a couple and their love story. The text is by her, Dominique Mirambeau, the photos are by him, Jean-Jacques Drivet. It’s the eventful photographic journey of a couple of students of that time. In the midst of the university upheaval of 1968, Jean-Jacques, a student at the Nanterre campus, was swept up in the anarchist wave…
His Pentax camera around his neck, he ran with the crowd in the Paris streets. His daring captivated his girlfriend from Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Dominique, who liked to draw and play the model. In their peaceful suburb, they dreamt of other distant worlds… They also admired the cartoonist Jean Giraud, he who became Moebius. Twenty years later, the grand master of comic books met Dominique and agreed to pay homage to the young photographer, who had died, by illustrating a selection of his photos. It is fresh, charming nostalgic.
