I had the chance to see French photographer Claude Iverné’s previous exhibition in Paris, it was in 2012 at the gallery Clémentine de la Féronnière and you can read my post to know more about it: Rashid Mahdi, Claude Iverné and Sudanese photographs.
Iverné is back in Paris but unfortunately, I’m not sure this time I’ll be there to see his show. His photographs are exhibited at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson until July, 30:
The Bilad es Sudan exhibition presenting the work of Claude Iverné, winner of the 2015 HCB Award, is on show at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson from May 11 to July 30, 2017. Egypt and the sultanate of Darfur. Here, he discovered a country steeped in contrasting influences, and the project to document this land of Sudan was born. Other trips followed. Wandering seemed the obvious choice for him, life rather than a journey, even to the point of learning the Arabic language. For the 2015 HCB Award, Iverné wanted to continue his project in South Sudan, the 193rd country of our planet, as he attempted to sketch out its historical details and map its contemporary contours.
If you’re in Paris this Summer, this is a show you shouldn’t miss. Mark the words of Claude Iverné: “Nothing is truth here, it’s in the faults, between the lines, that the imagination germinates.”
