[April 4 2017]
The “Americas” exhibition by Mark Cohen and Bernard Plossu recall the journey of the two photographer’s thoughts on United States and Mexico, each documenting the changes, the evolution — and involution — of two countries throughout two different generations.
In the late 1960s, the French photographer Bernard Plossu decided to move from Mexico to the USA capturing the profound diversity and the similarities (conformism, precariousness, poverty) of these two countries. Decades later, from 1983 to 2003, the American photographer Mark Cohen took a series of eight trips that will take him to Mexico, Veracruz, Campeche, Oaxaca, and Yucatan reporting the energy and the reality of these lands.
On view until April 15th at Galerie du Jour Agnès, 44 rue Quincampoix, Paris.
