Driven by a desire to innovate, The Eye of Photography had launched a new column called “The Eye of the Galleries,” a space hosting virtual tours of photography exhibitions. Today, we have passed another milestone by introducing a brand new gallery which features the most innovative technologies. This column will showcase major events around the world.
To inaugurate this new format, we picked out a beautiful exhibition in a beautiful place: the retrospective of the work of the French photographer of Romanian origin, Eli Lotar, at the Musée du Jeu de Paume. Eli Lotar’s oeuvre belongs to both the tradition of documentary photo-reporting and the Surrealist movement, highlighting the duality between realism and lyricism characteristic of the interwar period. Bringing together over a hundred vintage prints and original documents, this is the first retrospective to spotlight the work of this artist who was not only a photographer but also a filmmaker.
The exhibition opened its doors on February 14 and will be on view until May 28. We are pleased to invite you, no matter where you live, to stroll around the exhibition halls filled with 120 photographs. Enjoy your visit!
