Pioneer of female photography

From 20 February to 5 May 2019 the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne is presenting a major retrospective dedicated to Leica photographer Martine Franck.

Conceived by the Fondation Henri Cartier Bresson in Paris and co-produced with the Musée de l’Elysée, this exhibition gathers almost 140 photographs, some of which have never been shown before and many of them chosen by the photographer herself. In addition to the photographer’s unique perspective of her entire body of work, this exhibition and publication project is based on an in-depth study of the Martine Franck archives.
Martine Franck was a key figure of 20th century photographic art, a member of Agence VU in 1970, the co-founder of Agence Viva in 1972 and a member of the Magnum cooperative from 1983 as well as being a journalist, reporter and portrait artist. She came to photography via a personal approach linked in no small part to her travels in Asia and Europe. For almost fifty years, independently of any aesthetic trends, she thus built up a personal body of work that was largely dedicated to the human condition throughout the world.

With this exhibition, the Musée de l’Elysée gives the public the opportunity to rediscover a major body of work that, in addition to the diversity of its themes, offers an intense and unique perspective of our times.
