Exhibition Catalogue Paris Freed, Paris Photographed, Paris Exhibited, presented at the musée Carnavalet, Paris (11 june 2014 - 8 feb. 2015).
On 25 August 1944 Paris was liberated by General Leclerc's Second Armoured Division and the Allies. Two and a half months later, with France and the Allies still battling the Nazis, the Musée Carnavalet began the historical record with a Liberation exhibition that opened on 11 November. François Boucher, the curator and a member of the Resistance, had set out to 'bring together the documentation essential for future historians'.
Paris Freed, Paris Photographed, Paris Exhibited looks back to that 1944 exhibition, using photos by Robert Doisneau, René Zuber, Jean Séeberger and others to complement and contextualise a selection of documents testifying to the commitment of the Resistance movement in Paris.
This unique accumulation of documentary material provides an insight into how images were created in wartime, as photographs and films come together to show us how individual and collective visual memories were shaped; and how, over time, the same images were subject to varying interpretations.
