The exhibition is transferring from the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne and gives pride of place to photographers such as Jim Dine and Karl Lagerfeld, each of them taking over a room to display their abundant creative work and demonstrate the strength of their bonds with Gerhard Steidl.
The exhibition also offers an opportunity to present the collection of the Maison Européenne de la Photographie whose thirtieth anniversary we are celebrating, and features some forty images loaned by the MEP, all establishing a dialogue between photography and books. Twenty or so photographers including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, David Bailey, John Baldessari and Raymond Depardon – all of whom have worked with Steidl – have been carefully chosen, and the exhibition features both their books and their photographs.
