Just rising from the dead after two months of inactivity, but this time I AM BACK FOR GOOD – at least that’s what I’m trynna believe !
And today I am here to talk about an exquisite exhibition I saw the other day at the Photography Museum Charles Nègre in Nice of Lola Garrido‘s enchanting photographs collection – lasting until May 13th !!
Dorothea Lange, Robert Capa, Man Ray, Irving Penn and so many other prodigious artists from the 19th and 20th centuries were exposed. The collection was absolutely wonderful !
As an art worker (she’s been a curator, an art critic, the creative director of the FotoColectania Foundation and more…), I think the Spanish collector Lola Garrido has got a sensitivity that she probably wouldn’t have got if she wasn’t working in this sector. And I feel like this sensitivity is well transcribed by the exhibition that shows how wide is her collection, yet still comprising a unit, a common point between all these different photographs, from different artists.
A unit that we find in the sensuality of the pictures, their colors, their composition, the elegant subjects that are portrayed, and the staged photographs that look surprisingly natural. I loved it.
