The exhibition features over a hundred vintage prints, from Dutch and French collections, and is presented alongside a small selection of his short films spanning his entire oeuvre from 1955 to 2000. It includes original dummies of some of his best-known photographic books, which are being shown in France for the first time. Curated by Frits Gierstberg, curator at the Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam, and Pia Viewing, curator at Jeu de Paume.
