A series of 43 captioned black and white photographs by Philippe Gras taken in Paris during “the events.” These images, discovered in the photographer’s personal archive shortly after his death in 2007, are remarkable both for their artistic quality and for the power with which they depict the spirit of this time.

Photo exhibit is located in the northwest corner of the West Reading Room in Harper Memorial Library. May 1-25, 2018.

This photo exhibition is part of a larger series of events —films, visiting artists, roundtable discussion — organized by the France Chicago Center with the partnership and strong support of the Cultural Services at the Consulate General of France in Chicago, the Film Studies Center, the Department of Cinema & Media Studies, the Department of Romance Languages & Literatures, the Office of Study Abroad in the College, and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. All event in this series are free and open to the public.
