L'insensé - British photographers
Les Beatles et les Rolling Stones, Oxford et Cambridge, Shakespeare et Agatha Christie, qui dit mieux ? Conduite à gauche, première femme Premier Ministre, non à l?euro... oui à la différence ! Alors, la photo dans tout ça, une institution ou une nouvelle donne ? Même s?il est audacieux et vain de vouloir désigner un style photographique anglais, il se dégage à travers ce choix d?images que nous publions comme un parfum culturel des plus insensés.
