Lucien Hervé: Geometry of Light
11. 6. 2019–29. 9. 2019
This exhibition of one of the great photographers of the 20th century was originally presented at the Jeu de Paume, Paris’ foremost photographic gallery. In the spirit of Lucien Hervé’s reflection that “at best, one can hope to beget a vague idea of the whole by defining an intimate detail”, the Jakopič Gallery exhibition aims to contribute towards the appreciation of the rich legacy collectively created by authors working in this medium both locally and internationally.
