Martine Franck Retrospective

Share:

After fifteen years at the forefront since it opened in Montparnasse, the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson inaugurates a new space dedicated to photography in the heart of Le Marais. For the opening of its new spaces, the Fondation HCB pays tribute to Martine Franck by a retrospective dedicated to her.

Belgian documentary and portrait photographer Martine Franck (1938–2012) was a member of Magnum Photos for 32 years. She was the second wife of Henri Cartier-Bresson and co-founder and president of the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation.
Martine Franck professed a wonder and celebration of life, a profound joy faced with humanity while at the same time fighting against exclusion with all the empathy she was able to show. A socially engaged photographer, Martine Franck became an activist for many of these causes she actively photographed. The exhibition shows her wide variety, from activist gatherings to meditative landscapes, political engagement to friendly portraits, this deeply human vision open to the history of art was associated with the Viva agency, which she helped create, then with the cooperative Magnum Photos.
