With the title of "Je Suis Touchée – Je Te Vois", the Galerie Le Ballon Rouge in Paris presents an exhibition comprising three projects by German photographer Monika Barth.
The first series, "Présence Éternelle", features black and white portraits of a woman the photographer encountered in Los Angeles. It explores themes such as time, ageing, beauty and transience. The portraits are complemented by images of the California desert in the early morning hours.
For the project "Rencontres à Paris", also shot in black and white, the photographer captured people in Paris. The third series on display, titled "Mona L.", combines images of Hamburg’s cityscape with portraits of women who the photographer approached on the Hanseatic city’s streets.
