L'essence du visible New

L'essence du visible

Wright Morris (1910-1998) was a renowned writer and photographer who traveled the Great Plains of the Midwest during the 1930’s. This first monograph in French coincides with the first important exhibition in France at the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation in Paris. He photographs American rural life inspired by the realism of authors and photographers of the Great Depression such as John Steinbeck and Walker Evans. Devoid of figures, his photographs depict everyday objects and atmosphere. Morris’s poetic images exist in a fictional narrative, yet reference documentary style.
