Magnum Photos Photographer since 1976, Guy Le Querrec, a Parisian of Breton origin, fell in love with photography from an early age. In the tradition of Marc Riboud, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Sergio Larrain …, he then travels the world, making reportages that have made history. Africa, especially, marks him of its imprint. In the life and work of Guy Le Querrec, musics – jazz in particular – figure prominently. His gaze roams freely in this universe to give some of the most famous pictures of the 20th century.
Through this exhibition, Jazz J to ZZ, he immersed himself with modesty and generosity in the lives of artists to capture a silence, a secret, a note: their pulse. With an observant and curious eye, he has captured the atmosphere of almost half a century of jazz, making unpredictable images, authentic and touching.
“Being jazz is first and foremost a way of life, to stroll along the line of chance to catch a shooting star, a way to meet an imaginary that always contains improvisation, curiosity, which obliges to listen to others, to see them, to be available to better tell them by manifesting one’s own poetry. »Guy Le Querrec
