Berenice Abbott, Vivian Maier — Une fantastique passion



Berenice Abbott, Vivian Maier
Une fantastique passion

Past: October 8 → November 26, 2016

What is the connection between these two utterly different women? Berenice Abbott sought out the light, while Vivian Maier hid amongst the shadows. One indefatigably knocked on every door in order to get her projects off the ground; the other criss-crossed the globe on her own. Beyond their particular predilections, however, they were united by the same passion to document the real. They both lived without compromises; nothing and no one could get in the way of their vision. What they have left us are two singular bodies of work that are imbued with a spirit of freedom.
