Pho­tographs by Bernard Plos­su, “Mar­seille Inédit” expo­si­tion, cour­tesy of the Ter­ri­toires Partagés Gallery.

Bernard Plos­su is a cel­e­brat­ed French pho­tog­ra­ph­er who was born in Viet­nam in 1945. 

His pho­to­graph­ic ini­ti­a­tion start­ed when his father took him to vis­it the Sahara in 1958 with a Kodak brown­ie flash.

In 1965 he went to Mex­i­co, and trav­eled inces­sant­ly thereafter.

In 1988 he won the Grand Prix Nation­al de la Pho­togra­phie, and his work was giv­en a ret­ro­spec­tive at MNAM in the Cen­tre Pompidou.

He has pro­duced more than 25 books and his work has been shown in over 30 expositions.

Two exhi­bi­tions of his work were held simul­ta­ne­ous­ly in 2011, one in Mar­seille’s Vieille Char­ité and the oth­er, “La Mon­tagne Blanche,” at the Musée Granet in Aix-en-Provence.

He lives in La Cio­tat with his wife, pho­tog­ra­ph­er Françoise Nuñez.

TMR thanks Bernard Plos­su for per­mis­sion to pub­lish these images.
