The Abstract Art of Erich Hartmann

The Abstract Art of Erich Hartmann, Exhibition runs in Saint-Paul de Vence from 05.10.-21.10.2012

Erich Hartmann (1922-1999) was an internationally known photojournalist and a member of Magnum who travelled world-wide on assignment for major publications. Less well known are the personal projects and obsessions which he pursued from his earliest days as a photographer.

He was drawn to shadows and reflections, the pattern of ink drops dispersing in water, the play of refracted laser light, the enigmatic beauty he found in pieces of cellophane, integrated circuits, tiny objects at the heart of technology, even fruits and vegetables from the market.
