The Town Hall of the 16th arrondissement presents on its gates from February 2nd to 27th some forty photographs by Ergy Landau, centered on Paris, from the 1920s to the 1950s.
Since her arrival in 1923 and until her death in 1967 Ergy Landau traveled around her adopted city and her arrondissement (she lived in the 16th arrondissement, first rue Lauriston, then rue Scheffer) photographing monuments, scenes streets, children in the jardin d’acclimatation…
This exhibition, as well as the retrospective presented at the Maison de la photographie Robert Doisneau in Gentilly, traces the career of a photographer in the 20th century. The accompanying book helps to shed light on the trajectory of a photographer who was both singular and exemplary in the history of women photographers in the 20th century.
Curators: Kathleen Grosset and Laurence Le Guen
