This is the first major presentation of the American photographer’s work in France, bringing together around 150 contemporary prints and original maquettes. Conceived in 1961 and published in 1965, “A Dialogue With Solitude“ is one of that decade’s most striking books, capturing the zeitgeist in the manner of a photographic protest song. Dave Heath depicted the fractures and feeling of unease in the American post-war society of abundance, prior to the rise of the civil rights movement and opposition to the Vietnam War. After 1970, Dave Heath gave up photography and devoted his time to teaching (in particular at Ryerson University, Toronto) in Canada, where he later became a citizen and died in 2016.
