This is Lyon is words, of course. But it is also images. We are asking photographers or illustrators to show and tell us about the city differently.
We are starting this series off with the photographer Henri Granjean. This Croix-Rousse inhabitant worked as a photographer for the press for a long time, but also for businesses and cultural institutions.
He is currently preparing a book and an exhibition of 50 photographs, taken these last couple of years, along with 50 texts from different authors.
Henri Granjean has often photographed the actions that have shaken up Lyon and the rest of France these last few years. This engaged photographer uses irony to show the “absurdities of our world”.
The “Vogue des marrons” fair, Lyon Croix-Rousse. Photograph taken in the context of an exhibition presented in parallel to David Ayala’s show called “Le vent se lève, les idiots, les irrécupérables” (or “The wind picks up, the idiots, the irredeemable”).
