Louis FAURER / Photographies
From 11 September to 22 November 2009
Born in 1916 in Philadelphia, Louis Faurer was one of America’s “quiet” photographers.
Known for his raw, melancholy, and psychologically charged pictures of life on the street, and in particular for his evocative shots of 1940’s and 1950’s Times Square, New York, Faurer frequently drew on the film noir idiom to create memorable images. Photographs of moviegoers, box-office lines, ushers, and cinemas advertising B movies such as Force of Evil, Edge of Doom, and Ace in the Hole are recurrent themes.
