On the occasion of the Carré Rive Gauche event, Gérard Levy Gallery presents the mythical places that have made travelers dream forever.
Photography has forged the collective imaginary of the “other” before the practice of journeying was democratised.
Venice, Egypt, Jerusalem, Andalusia, Damascus, the mountains of Savoy, Algiers, the desert of Tunisia, so many immortalized journeys, by the masters of photography, forty years before the golden age of the postcard.
From 1845 to 1890, from the daguerreotype to the glass negative, passing by the calotype, it is an initiatory journey that Gérard Levy gallery offer us, through the eyes of the pioneers of the darkroom.
Auguste Salzmann, Carlo Ponti, Maxime du Camp, Robert MacPherson are some of the artists who are part of the twenty original works presented from June 6 to 15, during the Carré Rive Gauche event.
