DELPIRE

Some favorites from the inspiring exhibit on the prolific printer and photography advocate Robert Delpire at the Seoul Arts Center in Gangnam. Featuring work curated, showcased, pilfered, and published by Delpire and his various biblio-guises, the collection is a delightful smorgasbord of celluloid history, heavy on Delpire’s crop of published lensmen including the likes of Henri Cartier Bresson, Robert Frank, and William Klein. To anyone interested in the legends of street clicks, photojournalism, and other international men of the glass, this show is a must. Make sure to peruse the selection of Delipire’s books they have on display, especially the thick and complete collection of HCB with the forward by Yves Bonnefoy.
