In part of the Mois de la Photo 2014, tha parisian gallery Magnum presents exhibition Mare Mater by photographer Patrick Zachmann.
« This is about a journey, a journey through memories and exiles. A journey that spins and weaves all the destinies I stumble upon. The fate of the emigrants leaving their country south of the Mediterranean Sea in order to evade joblessness, boredom, the lack of a future, and the fate of the mothers who let them go away or realize that they’re gone.
Today, I’m starting the reversed journey. I leave in search of my long-forgotten origins, of the missing images in my family photo album. »
