“The eye traffics in feelings, not in thoughts.” ― Walker Evans
This afternoon I went to see the Walker Evans retrospective held at the Centre Pompidou.
Around 300 photographs to look at. That's a lot!
I thought there was something of Eugène Atget in the very systematic serial way he documented ordinary life.... maybe with more feelings though.
Of course you also can have a look at the iconic portraits... but there are so many others, I felt emotional in front of some.
Exhibition at the Centre Pompidou from April 26th 2017 to August 14th 2017
