‘Au cœur de mai 68’
1st – 31st May 2018
@ Art Gallery, AF Chandigarh
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of ’mai 68’, the Alliance Française de Chandigarh is delighted to host a special exhibition featuring 43 previously unpublished images of the May ‘68 protests taken by acclaimed photographer Philippe Gras and discovered after his death in 2007.
Philippe Gras was an independent photographer, but more important, he had an independent mind, refusing all compromises. All his life, he directed his camera towards works, themes and artists in whom he believed, and with whom he nurtured a deep relationship. He aimed also his camera at social phenomena which were important for him.
