Jeanloup Sieff in Stockholm


The Moderna Museet of Stockholm is organizing a retrospective of the work of French photographer Jeanloup Sieff (1933-2000). We are proposing two texts, an english version from La Lettre by Anna Tellgren, curator and commissioner of the exhibition. The other version, in french, by journalist Nathalie Cattaruzza. The French photographer Jeanloup Sieff (1933–2000) began photographing in the 1950s. He worked in the tradition of French humanist photography and photographers such as Edouard Boubat, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Doisneau. His early reportages have a romantic, nostalgic air, with lovers, cafes, smoke-filled jazz clubs and other familiar Paris milieus. He was commissioned by the fashion magazine Elle for portraits and short articles, and in 1958 joined the prestigious Magnum photo agency, before going back to freelance work the following year. One of his favourite subjects was portraits of French cinema and “la nouvelle vague” personalities, including Jean-Claude Brialy, François Truffaut and Jean Seberg.
