Exhibition : « Lucien Clergue and Otto Steinart »
In the 1950s and 60s, Lucien Clergue took photographs of the Gitanes on their annual pilgrimage to Sarah Kalyi, the Gypsies' patron saint. The aim of the trip was the small coastal village of Les Saintes-Maries de la Mer in the Camargue, which was pulsating with music and dance. In his black and white photographs, Clergue manages to capture poignantly the pursuit of life and liberty and a passion in the people's expression.

In addition to the Soulas exhibition 50 original photographs from our collections, titled "Streetlife" are on show. The selection documents a forty-year development of reportage photography.
During the Weimar Republic the first photo shots in public areas -on the streets- documenting focal pointsand events were done by Alfred Eisenstaedt or Tim Gidal. Outstanding photographers working for the illustrated magazines "Life" and "Stern", such as Jerry Cooke, Robert Lebeck, Stefan Moses and Thomas Hoepker continued in this tradition.
Again and again public streets became a stage for crucial contemporary historical happenings: so for example in the photo series, shot by Roman Vishniac of the Schtetln of Polish Jews, before their exp...
