LUCIEN CLERGUE: BRASÍLIA by Eva-Monika Turck

Lucien Clergue first won fame for his photographs of nudes, whose sensual use of light and water playing upon torsos enthralled Pablo Picasso and Jean Cocteau, his lifelong mentors. Today he is closely identified with Arles and its environs in the south of France, which he has portrayed for more than a half-century in numerous images of traveling artists, gypsies, war ruins and graves, plants in the swamps of the Camargue, tracks in the sand and bullfighting scenes. Brasília is the first presentation of Clergue’s marvelous photographs of Brazil’s capital, taken in 1962–63, just a few years after the city was built--a body of work until recently believed to be lost.
