Guy Le Querrec: Conteur d’images
An exhibition of the Magnum photographer’s portrait of Breton society goes on show in his hometown
The photojournalist and Magnum photographer, Guy Le Querrec, may have been originally from Brittany but his career has meant he has traveled the world.
In this new show at the Musée de Bretagne, Guy Le Querrec examines Breton society with a gaze that is both affectionate and distant. From 1965 to 1980, he made more than 5,000 photos in his native land, between Morbihan and what was still called the Côtes-du-Nord, where the photographer says he “sharpened his eye”.
The photographs exhibited show daily life, family and work, and are testament to his attachment to the region and his sensitivity of its various transformations over time.
