Passages illustrates Bruno Barbey’s unique position in the history of modern photography, his precise methodology and poetic vision produces images that keep the balance between proximity and distance, and capture beauty and vulnerability of existence with empathy; a “rendez-vous with history”, as he once said, as well a rendez-vous with life.

Fotografie Forum Frankfurt presents the oeuvre of the French photographer: On display are 100 photographs in black-and-white and colour, from the early 1960s to the present day. Additionally, films by Caroline Thiénot-Barbey give unique insight to Barbey’s work and approach.

This exhibition is produced in collaboration with Bruno Barbey and Maison Européene de la Photographie, Paris.
