Reflections of the Modern World

Share:

Through 23 December 2018 the exhibition space Le Bal in Paris shows the first major presentation of Dave Heath’s work in France.

Dave Heath (1931–2016) holds a unique place in the history of American photography. Influenced by Eugene W. Smith and the masters of the Chicago school including Aaron Siskind and Harry Callahan, he cannot be considered simply either as a documentary or experimental photographer. His photography is above all a testament to his presence in the world, in recognition of the other of an alter ego absorbed by inner turmoil. From the 1950s onwards he was one of the first photographers to express feelings of alienation and isolation in the modern world. The series “A Dialogue With Solitude”, published in a book in 1965, stands out as one of the most controversial works of the decade.

Dave Heath’s photographs are presented in a dialogue with three American cult films of the 1960’s. Between Direct Cinema and alternative practices, they feature three variations on the theme of solitude.
