May, Month of Masters. in Paris.

As I wrote before at Out of the Blues V, if you’re not in Paris this month of May 2014, you definitely should come!

It’s not the month of photography, but it seems so. In fact, every month seems a month of photography in Paris, just look at some of the amazing exhibitions you can see:

Pierre et Gilles, with 2 exhibitions: “Heroes” at Galerie Daniel Templon (April 10th to May 31st); and “Carte Blanch”, a tribute to Marie Antoinette, at Galerie des Gobelins, until October 5th;

Oleg Dou: “8 Years, Retrospective”, at RTR/Russian TeaRoom, until May 3rd;

Bernard Faucon: “Le Temps d’Avant” at Galerie VU, until April 26th;

Jean-Michel Fauquet: “L’Oeil du Signe”, at MEP (Maison Européenne de Photographie) until May 25th;

Martin Parr: “Paris”, also at MEP until May 25th;

Robert Mapplethorpe, with 2 major exhibitions: “Robert Mapplethorpe” at Grand Palais, until July 13th; and “Mapplethorpe – Rodin” at Musée Rodin, until September 21st;

Luc Lacroix and Patrice Poch, with “Bloody Belgium”, at Galerie du Jour Agnès B., until May 17th;

Duane Michals: at Galerie Esther Woerdehoff, until June 12th.
And if this isn’t enough for you to come and visit Paris…

…well, you also have Henry Cartier-Bresson, at Centre Georges Pompidou until June 9th.
