Paris Izis Photo Exhibit
Inside the Paris town hall, there is currently an amazing photo exhibit by Izis. Izis (real name: Izraëlis Bidermanas) was a Lithuanian artist who emigrated to Paris in 1930 when he was 19 and worked there as a photographer - especially for Paris Match. He should be as famous as Doisneau, Ronis or Cartier-Bresson (he was even one of the "Five French Photographers" that took part in the New York MoMA exhibition in 1951), but he is not! That is why I think it's really good that Paris offers us the occasion to see his work. You wish you could see it too? Well, no worries, you can "visit" the exhibit without coming to Paris (I know you probably would prefer to!). Just click here.
