To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Reporters sans Frontieres, the Musee du Petit Palais hosted an exhibition of 100 photos dedicated to two of the great names in French photojournalism: Pierre and Alexandra Boulat.
My visits to El Cite Luminiere always includes spending time with loved ones, the latest exhibitions and wandering through Marche Puces in search of antiques and environmentally-chic finds. This trip, to one of the most inspiring cities, never ceases to provide much anticipated pleasure with an especially satisfying exhibition or two. Last year I shared my perspectives on the stunning Yves Saint Laurent exhibition, put on by Carla Bruni at the Musee du Petit Palais. A more recent visit included a competitively pleasurable stop at the very same site, this time devoted to a serious social issue much of the world takes for granted.
For as long as it is in danger, Reporters sans Frontieres (Reporters without Borders), has tirelessly defended the freedom of the press, spanning over a quarter of a century thus far. It is a commitment the organization shares with the City of Paris to fight for such freedom. It reminds us that over a third of the world’s population live in a country where journalists are still persecuted, imprisoned or killed. Since 1992, this association has manifested itself in a number of interesting ways, notably by publishing annually a series of photographic albums to finance its work. The dynamic organization recently mobilized one of Paris’ great cultural sites for socially-engaged art, which easily drew me for another visit right near the Seine. Click to Read More.
