Exhibition - Photo Quai

The 3rd biennale of photographers around the world organised by the Musee du Quai Branly in Paris.
  All the photographers must be non Western. The aim is to give a chance and to compare the points of view, maybe challenge conventional views of photography.  I found the work incredibly inspirational.  Very varied. The photos are huge, outdoors along Quai Branly and in the gardens of the musee. Something powerful happens to an image when it is that big. I was also surprised at how such varied work could all hang together.  Maybe it is because you have to walk around it over a huge space with everyday life going on around you. I don't know. It is a festival I will look out for in the future.
