Édouard Boubat at Centre atlantique de la Photographie
Édouard Boubat, Lella, Brittany (detail), 1947.
BREST, FRANCE.-The gallery at the Centre atlantique de la Photographie presents Édouard Boubat, on view through October 22, 2005. In collaboration with the Rapho agency in Paris, the CAP, Atlantic Center of Photography, dedicates its first exhibit of the season to an original retrospective of Edouard Boubat through some one hundred photographs representing the diversity of his work. The exhibit is also a veiled reference to the two photographers, poets and friends of Boubat the Center invited last season: Bernard Descamps and Bernard Plossu.

He spent his childhood in Montmartre, where he was born in 1923. Went to the École Estienne. Worked in a plant... On Sundays, he picked up photography. In 1947, he met Lella, his muse, the first woman to have posed for him, with whom he made some of his most famous photographs. In 1951, he exhibited at the La Hune gallery together with Brassaï, Izis and Doisneau. The magazine Réalités sent him to over thirty countries… Every time he came back with images that only he could take. Very quickly his singularity and his talent were recognized in France and abroad. He exhibited all over the world, from the Art Institute in Chicago to the Museum of Modern Art in Seoul to the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. In 1976, he published his first major book La Survivance (Survival), to be followed by many others, to which writers such as Antoine Blondin or Michel Tournier will be associated.
