A daily section of JFC at the Visa Festival for Image from August 31 to September 8, 2019.
Alain Keller, an uncommon photographer of great sensitivity, finally enters the firmament of photojournalism, with his exhibition at the convent of the Minimes, in the Pierre and Alexandra Boulat space. Alain has an extremely endearing personality, his work is sincere and is all modesty. This retrospective, from his first photos of May 68, is enchanting, tender and true: the picture of his parents so simple, the unforgettable Bosnian soldier playing the piano in the snow in front of his brothers in arms, these striking portraits bring tears of emotion. This exhibition is also a lesson in photography for his compositions and his lights which reveal a very great talent, served in its realization by the quality of an excellent printer, Yonnel Leblanc, former of Central Dupon Images, of exceptional quality.
