“If I had to remember only one quote about photography, it would be Paul Strand’s, written at the opening of his exhibition at the Museum of American Art in Giverny in 2006: “I want to create great emotions from small things…”.
This sentence alone sums up everything I love about the images I’ve accumulated over the past 40 years, and it’s always present in the work of the photographers I’ve had the honor and joy of knowing.
It is my turn to pass on the baton, I am parting with my collection and I am pleased to be able to show you one last time these fractions of eternity. I suggest you meet me at the DUREV gallery, we will discuss the photographers we love around several hundred prints, most of them vintage, which have remained, for too long, buried in my boxes.”
