Lisette Model at the Jeu de Paume in Paris.

Lisette Model at the Jeu de Paume in Paris.

This exhibition of some 120 of Lisette Model’s most representative photographs illustrates the very bold and direct approach to reality that made her one of the most singular proponents of street photography, the particular form of documentary photography that developed in New York during the 1940s, through the camerawork of such as Helen Levitt, Roy de Carava and Weegee.
Alongside the photographs, archive film and sound recordings of Lisette Model will evoke the photographer’s life, and there will be copies of magazines to which she contributed (Regards, Harper’s Bazaar, etc.)”

Sophie Ristelhueber at the Jeu de Paume

Sophie Ristelhueber at the Jeu de Paume

Sophie Ristelhueber (French, b. 1949) traveled to Kuwait at the end of the Gulf War to record the physical traces of the conflict. Entitled Fait or Fact, the resulting series of photographs—aerial and ground-level, in color and black-and-white—depicts trenches and tank tracks, bomb craters, dense smoke rising from blazing oil wells, battle detritus scattered in the sand. Ristelhueber hangs the large prints in an expansive grid that at first reads as a beautiful abstract field, then reveals itself to be a reconstitution of the battlefield on the gallery wall.”
The series “Beyrouth”, “Vulaines” and “Eleven Blowups” as well as two videos made for this show, are also exhibited at the Jeu de Paume until March 22, 2009.
