José Medeiros, Ritual dance of the Kayapó natives from the Kuben-kran-ken tribe, Pará, Brazil, 1957.

“The complete works of Piauí-born photographer José Medeiros, comprising around 20,000 negatives from a decisive moment in Brazilian photojournalism, were acquired by the Instituto Moreira Salles in August 2005. From age 25 to age 40, Medeiros worked for the magazine O Cruzeiro, then the largest in the country; at the time, its photography department, headed by Jean Manzon, was revolutionizing the Brazilian press’s treatment of photography.

In the 1960s, Medeiros would dedicate himself to cinematic photography, becoming, as Glauber Rocha put it, "the only man who knew how to create a Brazilian light” - the same “environmental light, the most natural thing” that bathed his street scenes and his portraits of the famous and the anonymous, the poor and the rich, smiling girls in Copacabana and Indians in Xingu, revelers in Carnival and patients in an insane asylum, among the many extremes of Brazilian life that he recorded in his reporting.“

Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Vers les îles, Pierre, Vera et Arlette, 1927.

“Un mundo flotante”

“A self-taught photographer, Lartigue (1894-1986) started taking pictures at the age of 6 using his father’s camera. His fascination with the world around him was captured on film and he started keeping what could be best described as a ‘lifelong diary’, documenting his family, childhood experiences, beginnings of aviation and cars plus even the glamorous women in the area of France he grew up in.”

Marcel Isy-Schwart, La route de corail, 1957.

“La route de corail”, sous-titré “Un curieux au fond du Pacifique”, est un livre passionnant sur les fonds sous-marins du Pacifique. Il raconte, au fil des escales de l'auteur, l'histoire des harpons de guerre aux îles Fidji, des danses Vagamalolo à Tonga - le royaume de la plus grande reine du monde -, de la Polynésie en fleurs et de la féerie, des mers du sud au Samoa, d'une île de lumière et d'un paradis sous la mer en Nouvellela Calédonie et pour finir, à Touamotou, de requins qui attaquent l'homme.

“La route de corail” est une magnifique plongée au milieu des madrépores géants, des coraux étincelants, des minéraux animés et des gouffres insondables, un véritable dépaysement pour les yeux et pour l'imagination.“
