Jacques Henri Lartigue, A Floating World

Retrospective exhibition

Lartigue photographed everything that moved him and seemed beautiful to him; his photography also helped him to combat the passage of time. This exhibition focuses on the themes he explored throughout his career and on photography as an instrument of memory, a tool for capturing the fragility of existence and the short-lived nature of happiness.
