Life Through A Lens: everyday life In 1930s France is captured in a forthcoming exhibition at the Peter Fetterman Gallery

If you’re a photography buff with a penchant for the 1930s French Humanist movement, and are planning to visit Los Angeles in the coming months, take note: the Peter Fetterman Gallery’s Toujours Paris exhibition (October 27 2018-February 23 2019) will feature curated photographers including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Louis Stettner, Martine Franck and Sabine Weiss (see her 1958 work, Avenue des Champs Elysees, above) among others.

Teetering between journalistic realism and poetry, French photographers from this era trained their lenses on the everyday, spontaneous moments in human experience. Art lovers and collectors alike – expect to be enthralled. Here are five more of Robb Report UK’s favourite pieces on display…
