Léon Herschtritt’s  (French, b. 1936) fifty year body of photography is a study of our humanity. From his early career as a freelance reporter to now, he captures the zeitgeist of his era through his choice of political, social, and human subjects. His several bodies of work include slices of Parisian life, views of Africa, and the Berlin Wall.  In addition, Herschtritt’s portraiture captures the atmosphere and bears witness to the artists, intellectuals and politicians of his era. This exhibition will feature Herschtritt’s body of work from 1960s Paris.
