A rather obscure personality has come to occupy Hall 14 bis of the Museum of Modern Art, Paris with his black and white photographs: it’s Benjamin Katz. And what a beautiful surprise this exhibition has turned out to be!
Born in Anvers in 1939, Katz grew up in Belgium. In 1956, he moved to Berlin and since then, he has spent much of his life in Germany where he managed several galleries. Before becoming a full-time profession, photography for Katz was a mere hobby. A prolific photographer ever since, he is today credited with some of the most intimate ‘behind-the-scenes’ photographs of important artists since the 70s.
