Paris Photo is recognized as a festival of exceptional standard by professional photographers world-wide. We have called your attention upon a few of last year’s attractions (many still going on), and as the event reaches its close, we would like to take you on one last photographic walk, just around the corner from your Hotel Louvre Marsollier.
Near the Assemblée Nationale (aka the French House of Congress), just across the Seine river, the Dutch Institute houses a rare collection of photographs by painter George Hendrik Breitner (1857 – 1923). Breitner’s work opens an unusual and very modern window onto the streets of Amsterdam, Paris and Berlin at the turn of the XXth century.
This retrospective is unique in many ways, made intriguing by the fact that Breitner was one of the first of his contemporaries to purchase a portable camera and explore its technical and artistic possibilities with limitless spontaneity and joy.
