Musée de l’Elysée presents two exhibitions : « Genesis » by Sebastião Salgado and « STATE » by Paolo Woods. Genesis is a global photographic quest in which the Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado rediscovers places and peoples that have so far escaped the footprint of modern society. In November 2010, Paolo Woods settled in Les Cayes, a city in the south of Haiti. STATE is an exhibition that recounts his experience of the island. With an ambition that is both poetic and journalistic, it draws on the universal scope of a national adventure that concerns us more than we think.
