Art Contemplating Art

Photographs of Art Staring at Photographs Watching Us

Last autumn I hit “Lashkars”, a photo expo of Fondation Carmignac laureate Massimo Berruti. This Italian photojournalist photographed tribal militia in the Swat Valley along the Pakistani / Afghan border for three months during the winter of 2010.

The exhibit was set up in the Chapelle de Beaux-arts at Paris’s Ecole des Beaux-arts, and I was intrigued by the co-mingling of the original art on display there and the stark black & white photographs.

In addition to the above shots, I snagged this.
