The Galerie du Montparnasse welcomes Rodolphe Baras around his photographic exhibition “2012 Paris et son 14eme d’Antan”.
After twenty years in the United States, Rodolphe rediscovered in 2012 the 14th arrondissement of Paris and its mythical places and especially these transmitters of memory and knowledge, artists, craftsmen, intellectuals, transmitters of authentic neighborhood life. From then on Rodolphe brought together some of them in a series of intimate portraits as a testimony of friendship and respect.
Some already disappeared since, others are still present, here are characters, “real” at home in their 14th. This is where they bring a different and often more human perspective in the face of a sometimes devastating gentrification…
This set of analog photos is only 10 years old and yet it already seems to be from another era when time was perhaps slower.
The opening will take place on Thursday, Oct. 20 at 6 p.m. with songs and accordion on the program!
