The Photographers

William Klein
is an American artist known for his unconventional abstract photography. Born on April 19, 1928 in New York, he studied painting and worked briefly as an assistant to Fernand Léger in Paris, and after 1954 concentrates on photography. The grain, the violence of the contrasts, the complex compositions, the decadence, the deformations, the movement of press photography became the elements of a voluntary approach. William Klein refuses documentary objectivity, and allows himself a bias that erases any distinction between the photographer and his subject.
A tireless surveyor of Parisian sidewalks, William Klein has captured the soul of his adopted city for over forty years. "Here, for a yes or a no, and often for a no, people go out. The city is theirs", he is still amazed.

Alain Buu
born in Paris in 1960, spent the first years of his life between France and Vietnam.

Having become independent and fascinated by Afghanistan, a country he discovered during a report after September 11, he returned there in 2004, then in 2005 to produce the book "Sur les pas des cavaliers". Alain Buu brought back timeless images of a This was followed by works on Malian customs related to fishing, the one-child policy in China and the 700 kilometer journey in the footsteps of the hero of Joseph Kessel's travel book "Les Cavaliers".
Egyptian revolution of 2011.
In 2013, he leaves for three months to follow, from the Himalayas to the Bay of Bengal, the Ganges, this giant that the Hindus worship. His very personal style underlines the fervor and the little regard for the river which is also an open sewer. He brought back, among other things, this astonishing image of the pilgrims of the Kumbh Mela, going, on temporary bridges, to the confluence of the three sacred rivers: the Ganges, the Yamuna and the Sarasvati.
