On the occasion of the Rencontres de la Photographie in Arles, the Montmajour Abbey welcomes the exhibition The Habit of Being by Kate Barry.

The photographer, who died prematurely in December 2013 at the age of 46, left behind an outstanding yet little-known body of work. Portraits of stars and fashion photographs were the core of her career and contributed to her recognition. She quietly went about her personal, delicate and fragile work, mainly landscapes, contemplating them in silence and solitude, far from the bustling crowd. Prints made under her supervision, cut-up contact sheets and minimalist colors have been saved.

An eponymous book, published by Éditions Xavier Barral, accompanies the exhibition.
