591 Exhibition - Thierry Clech

All photos © Thierry Clech

WATCH here

Almost exactly a year ago you had the opportunity to see another exhibition by Thierry with photos from Istanbul. I wrote then: "I am impressed by the vision of Thierry, he seems to find things to photograph everywhere,".

This time he shares photos from India a country with well over a billion people. I am equally impressed now - Thierry is very observant and possesed with something that Robert Frank has pointed out: "There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough - there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph."

I hope you will enjoy the exhibition "India" as much as I have. - Mr Urbano

Quoted from Thierry's blog: thierryclech.blogspot.com
"Thierry Clech partage son temps entre le cinéma et la photographie, qu’il pratique en promeneur, en bas de chez lui ou à l’autre bout du monde. L’étrangeté, le surréalisme, la mélancolie ou la drôlerie des situations faisant à chaque fois partie de ses voyages, à Istanbul, New York, Pékin ou Séville, mais aussi bien dans le quartier de La Défense ou encore en Bretagne, d’où il est originaire.
