Galerie Rouge organizes the first solo exhibition in France devoted to photographer Jill Freedman (1939-2019). Little known to the general public, Jill Freedman was nevertheless one of the most important American photographers of the second half of the 20th century. Close to the humanist tradition, she was a big-hearted rebel and a formidable storyteller.
The exhibition is structured around three “worlds” that Jill Freedman has worked with and photographed over the long term: the streets of New York, her adopted city since 1964; the Poor People’s March on Washington organized in the wake of Martin Luther King’s assassination in 1968; and the life of a traveling circus in the Southeastern United States in the 1970s.
