It happens to be An American Season at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris (MEP) this winter. With four photo exhibitions centred around the work of American photographers, here are some excellent reasons to visit MEP this January:

Family Pictures from the MEP’s Collections

Exploring the themes of family, genealogy and identity in American photography, this collective exhibition presents intimate works by some of the finest American photographers – Richard Avedon, Harry Callahan, Elliot Erwitt, Robert Frank, Nan Goldin, Emmet Gowin, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Nicholas Nixon and W Eugene Smith. The photographs selected for the exhibition do not fit the traditional definition of ‘family pictures’. Rather, these are aesthetic representations of the complex interactions between the photographers and those close to them.
