A survey of Raymond Depardon‘s photography will go on display in Rio de Janerio, tracing the photographer’s working relationship with color photography.

After successful spells exhibiting at Le Grand Palais in Paris and at the MUCEM museum in Marseille, “Raymond Depardon: Un moment si doux” will next travel to the Cultural Center Banco do Brasil (CCBB), Rio de Janeiro.

Taking color as its cue, the exhibition explores the photographer’s work and life from the late 1950s to the present day. Wending through informative ‘sweet’ moments of the photojournalist’s vast output, including his discovery of the medium and formative explorations to Africa, the exhibition will amass over 160 color photographs spanning the length of Depardon’s 60-year career, with many of the images previously unpublished.

Unique to the exhibition, Depardon’s photographs documenting his travels through the Brazil will also be showcased.
