Paris glamour: a photo exhibition signed MAGNUM

3un Festival Createur Au Canal Saint Martin

Step back in time and discover the images of the May 68 riots immortalizing gals in mini-skirts on the Parisian cobblestones or Serge Gainsbourg with his wax clone at the Musée Grévin.

And how about winding back the clock to the Paris of the glam Fifties the twist of the Sixties and the bling of the 80s?

Immediate boarding at the Hôtel de Ville city hall, where a hundred photographs taken around the capital are on display, taken by photographers from the cult agency Magnum since its creation in 1947.

A little bit of culture! In total rupture with the establishment of that period, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, George Rodger and David « Chim » Seymour founded MAGNUM, allowing them work as photo-reporters in total independence...

We adore: a super and free exhibition showcasing thirty leading names in photography (Elliott Erwitt, Raymond Depardon, Martin Parr…).

Paris Magnum, la capitale par les plus grands photoreporters. Free exhibition, until March 28th 2015. Every days except Sundays and holidays from 10am to 6:30pm. Salle Saint-Jean
