Louis Stettner’s Iconic Photographs at Centre Pompidou

From June 15 to September 12, 2016
At Centre Pompidou, Paris

With the exhibition, Ici, Ailleurs (Here, There), Centre Pompidou pays homage to iconic American photographer Louis Stettner at its recently opened Galerie de photographies.

Exploring Stettner’s photography in all its stylistic and chronological scope, the exhibition includes several of his most important photographs documenting the cultural and societal changes in post-war Paris, the ever-changing landscapes of New York, the Ibiza fishermen (which formed the basis of his unpublished book “Pepe & Tony”) and the small towns of America.

Some of the photographer’s most famous images, including Aubervilliers (1947), Brooklyn Promenade (1954) and Manège (1949) are on view at the exhibition, as well as his more recent work exploring the Alpilles uplands of southern France. With a hundred odd works, Centre Pompidou’s Ici, Ailleurs is a poetic tribute to one of the greatest American photographers alive today.
