Jazz by Guy Le Querrec
Le Palais will host an exhibition of Guy Le Querrec’s photographs capturing the lives of Jazz musicians
“Jazz is above all a style of living, of letting chance guide one’s steps so as to catch a shooting star, a way of actively developing an imagination which always has room for improvisation and curiosity, which compels one to listen to others, to be open to them and to tell their story while bringing out one’s own poetry.” – Guy Le Querrec.
Magnum Photographer Guy Le Querrec’s photos plunge the viewer into the everyday lives of jazz musicians, into the private world of the people who have forged the genre down the years. Each image highlights the unique relationship between the photographer and the musician, the tenderness and complicity that unites them. The pictures also show the immense talent of an artist who, sometimes almost unnoticed, has been able to capture instants of life, including the inner life and the solitude of musicians, the times spent among friends and the excitement and the passion of concerts.
