Guy Le Querrec: stories from light

20th September 2018

Part of the Guernsey Photographic Festival 2018. Free exhibition at the Priaulx Library. Students at the University of Rennes 2 chose photographs from the extensive archives of local historic photographs at the Musée de Bretagne in Rennes, and grouped them according to themes they had identified in the work of photographer Guy Le Querrec (b. Paris, 1941), a member of Magnum Photos, whose career as a professional photographer began in 1967, and whose family were from Brittany. A selection of these photographs and the Le Querrec works that inspired the choices have been brought to Guernsey and installed here in the Priaulx Library. They demonstrate how the quirky and the beautiful that can be found in everyday life, and as such challenge us to look more deeply at the process of photography and handling of subject by professionals and amateurs alike. The exhibition is curated by art historian Natalie Bouloch of the Université de Rennes 2, who gave visitors an interesting introduction to the exhibition in a Q & A session to celebrate its opening. The exhibition continues until 20 October 2018.
