Josef Sudek 'Le Monde à ma fenêtre' at Jeu de Paume

  • 1 Place de la Concorde Paris, Île-de-France, 75008 France (map)

Somewhere between chilling apocalyptic visions, distressing personal recollections and historical documentation, Josef Sudek’s photographs portray nature as utterly beguiling and unknowable. His scenes never contain any humans, they simply portray a silent but living, breathing, constantly evolving natural backdrop, shot through with an almost disturbing sense of despair. His lens often zooms in on the finest of organic details, like a mysterious beam of light that shines through the fog, drops of steam that settle on windows, or moss-infested tree stumps.
