Exhibition presents a photographic journey inspired by Simone de Beauvoir's diary 'America Day by Day'
Coast to Coast, SONJ, 1947 @ Estate of Esther Bubley.


NEW YORK, NY.- Sous Les Etoiles Gallery is presenting «1947, Simone de Beauvoir in America» a photographic journey inspired by her diary «America Day by Day».

This exhibition curated by Corinne Tapia, director of Sous Les Etoiles Gallery, aims to illustrate the depiction of De Beauvoir’s encounter with America at the time. It is the first time that this book becomes the subject of an exhibition.

In January of 1947, the French writer and intellectual, Simone de Beauvoir (1908–1986) landed in New York’s La Guardia Airport, beginning a four-month journey across America. She traveled from East to the West coast by trains, cars and even Greyhound buses. She has recounted her travels in her personal diary and recorded every experience with minute detail. De Beauvoir decorticates everything she sees, immersing herself in the New World. It is also most certainly a very photographic book. As you read it, you can easily imagine the footsteps of Simone de Beauvoir in places she discovers for the first time impressed by the American way of life that begins to take effect.” I wanted the viewer to be as close to her reality at that time, so most of the photographs exhibited are in the year of 1947”, said Corinne Tapia.

This exhibition includes the photographs from Ansel Adams, Ferenc Berko, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Esther Bubley, Morris Engel, Louis Faurer, William Gottlieb, Sid Grossman, Martha Holmes, Sy Kattelson, Saul Leiter, Rebecca Lepkoff, Fred Lyon, Wayne Miller, Gjon Mili, Wayne Miller, Ruth Orkin, Arnold Roth, Art Shay, Fred Stein, Tony Vaccaro, Brett Weston, Ida Wyman, Max Yavno and Tobb Webb.
