Wright Morris, L'essence du visible

Official book of the Wright Morris – L’essence du visible exhibition, being shown at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris, from June 18th to September 29th, 2019.

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.
