Anonymous and famous amateurs
Anonymous and amateurs are the ones who produce the largest number of photographs. Thus a lengthy investigation was made into photographic backgrounds ranging from the birth of the media until today, through the First World War, the Liberation, photos family, photos posted on social networks etc. From this huge mass of images, we sometimes see the emergence of a talent, a great future name of photography ...
At the heart of intimacy
In a world where social networks are full of photographs of both self-centered and devoid of modesty and the private sphere is gradually dissolved, it has become challenging to protect our intimacy and secret beauty. It seemed important to the organizers of the Month Photo to reconsider the definition of privacy and its treatment in photography. Thirty photographers were selected by Jean-Louis Pinte. Among them there'll be the exhibition "From Black and White to Color" by William Eggleston at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson.
