Les amies de place Blanche
This is a fresh look at Swedish photographer Christer Strömholm’s photographs, with his son Joakim
and their meeting in 2011 with Nana and Jacky – the two main transsexual friends photographed in Paris in the late 50s. This is also the opportunity
to evoke, in France, the particular issue that is the body and identity.
The Friends of Place Blanche, published with the support of Galerie VU’, goes back over the eponymous book (published in 1983 by ETC in Sweden only) about those at the margins of society, in the Parisian nightlife of the 50s and 60s.
