From November 19, 2013 to April 6, 2014, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain will present América Latina 1960-2013, coproduced with the Museo Amparo in Puebla (Mexico). The exhibition will offer a new perspective on Latin American photography from 1960 to today, focusing on the relationship between text and the photographic image.
Bringing together more than seventy artists from eleven different countries, it reveals the great diversity of photographic practices by presenting the work of documentary photographers as well as that of contemporary artists who appropriate the medium in different ways.
This unique presentation will provide the visitor with the opportunity to delve into the history of the region and to rediscover the works of major artists rarely exhibited in Europe.
Spanish photographer Antonio Mora fuses standard portraits with landscape, animal, and abstract photography, resulting in extraordinary combinations. His ongoing Dream Portraits transform two separate images by combining them into one frame and thereby reconfiguring their visual power.
Playing with opacity and composition, Mora’s keen eye finds a likeness in unlikely pairs, turning the limbs of a tree into an extension of a persons face or the profile of a woman into a beautiful tidal wave. Each image holds its own unique and complementary union of visual elements.
Ultimately, the pairings result in a dreamy blend of ideas. Caught somewhere between two thoughts, the images represent a sort of transitioning or in-between phase of consciousness. There’s a beautiful mystery to Mora’s photography that is both curiously mind-boggling and entrancing.

Exhibition Paul Reas: Daydreaming about the Good Times at Impressions Gallery, Bradford. Paul Reas is part of the pioneering generation of photographers who revealed and critiqued British class and culture in the 1980′s and 90′s. Strongly influenced by his working class upbringing in Bradford, Reas used humour and sharp observation to comment on a new corporate and commercial world epitomised by heritage industry sites, retail parks, and supermarkets.

Late Hungarian photojournalist Paul Almásy traveled across the globe, capturing images of people from all walks of life around the world. Over the course of his career, which spanned more than 60 years, Almásy spent multiple decades documenting the intimate and quaint beauty of Paris and its people. His images are an ode to the city, bearing the photographer’s own love for Parisian culture and lifestyle.
The photographer’s joyful and romantic portraits reveal a sense of life that Parisians in the mid-20th century lived—one filled with simple, daily pleasures. From youths merrily playing instruments and dancing in public parks and streets to older couples taking a moment to get lost in each other’s eyes, there’s an undeniable air about the city of love that transcends time.
