PARIS IN THE SPRINGTIME

7 APRIL - 3 MAY 2014

Paris and photography are the perfect match, and this exhibition contains key images by some of the major photographers that have fallen in love with, and photographed, the French capital.

On a simple level, the exhibition shows how photographers have responded to the famous charms of the city and its people. However, it is also an examination of the French cliché that has contributed to an international reputation for romance, culture and fine living. The "look" of France that we know from a thousand films, books, posters and advertisements was born in Paris and perpetuated by many of the photographers that worked there in the mid-twentieth century.

Additionally, the exhibition reveals how photography in Paris helped to boost French National pride at a time when it was crippled both spiritually and financially after the Second World War.
