Jean-Pierre Laffont: Turbulent America
NOVEMBER 16, 2017 -JANUARY 6, 2018

OPENING RECEPTION THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 6-8 PM

“As a photographer for the Gamma Agency, Sygma Photo News, as well as a White House Correspondent, Laffont traveled across the country to portray the America that he saw with an insatiable curiosity. His photographs provide viewers with an unaltered look into American life, from protests for and against the Vietnam War, Civil Rights movements marching on Washington, Nixon’s departure from the White House, the Flower Power movement, the first gay pride parades, or even New York gangs. Speaking about these images Laffont comments, “They do what photographs do best: freeze decisive moments in time for future examination. These photographs form a personal and historical portrait of a country I have always viewed critically but affectionately, and to which I bear immense gratitude.””
