The Petit Palais, which has included photography and contemporary images in its exhibitions since 1998, supports Reporters Without Borders with an exhibition of its 25th anniversary album featuring photographs by Pierre and Alexandra Boulat.
The album, entitled “100 Photos by Pierre and Alexandra Boulat for Press Freedom”, pays tribute to two great names in French photoreportage, and the exhibition at the Petit Palais shows two complementary ways of looking at the world – both of them impassioned, disturbing, and deeply humanistic. Pierre’s photographs of the slums of Nanterre in the 1950s or the daily life of American women have the same intensity as his daughter’s work four decades later in Gaza, or depicting the suffering of Afghan women.
