Through more than 500 images by photographers including Jane Evelyn Atwood, Sammy Baloji, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Luc Delahaye, Dorothea Lange, Martin Parr and Wiktoria Wojciechowska, this book brings us face to face with some of the most significant events in contemporary history, revealing the decisive role played by photography in shaping our perceptions.
From the struggle for civil rights to geopolitical upheaval, from technological advances to major cultural movements, via the daily lives of strangers – sometimes violent, sometimes poetic – each image reveals, in a poignant, even tragic way, the destiny of a humanity grappling with the inexorable march of a History that often overtakes or crushes it.
Published to coincide with the exhibition of the Antoine de Galbert donation at the Musée de Grenoble, this catalogue offers an impressive panorama of our times and the decisive role played by photography in shaping our perceptions and contemporary mythologies.
Texts by Antoine de Galbert, Guy Tosatto, Noëlig Le Roux, Antoine Champenois, Joséphine Givodan.
