« Night photography involves long exposure times, and one of the effects of a long exposure is that, along with light, time becomes part of the equation. » Marie Bovo
The Fondation HCB presents the Nocturnes exhibition, an unprecedented selection of images taken by Marie Bovo at twilight, in Marseille and Africa.
« A portrait is always a renewed encounter. I am nervous just before a shooting, then, gradually, tongues start to loosen up. What I’m after is to capture the light in the eye, the movements and the receptiveness and concentration – just when the model remains silent. » Martine Franck
The Fondation HCB is dedicating an exhibition to the portraits of Martine Franck (1938-2012) in its Collections gallery.
