An important retrospective of Martine Franck's work, and a collection of some of her favourite images

Overview

Martine Franck: One Day to the Next is both an important retrospective and a collection of some of the late photographer's favourite images, grouped within a framework of themes: childhood, the theatre, the Orient, old age, portraits, museums, and landscapes. In creating her pictures, which range from revealing portraits of such artists and writers as Michel Foucault and Marc Chagall to engaging studies of children playing at the seaside and a photographic record of the acclaimed Théâtre du Soleil, Franck saw the camera as a 'frontier, a barrier of sorts that one is constantly breaking down so as to get closer to the subject.'
