DAVID LYNCH AT MAISON EUROPEENE DE LA PHOTO
Opening to the public tomorrow is this exhibition of photographs Small Stories from the cult filmmaker. The Maison Européenne de la Photographie gave Lynch carte blanche, and the result is a series of about 40 dreamlike black-and-white images produced specially for the show. They are predictably unsettling and powerful and feature recurring “Lynchian” motifs. “Still images can contain stories. Mostly, still images contain small stories. And, as it happens, sometimes there are interesting stories that are small. Small stories take place during a very short period of time. However, the mind and emotions can become engaged by looking at a still image, and small stories can grow into huge stories. It depends, of course, on the viewer. It’s almost impossible not to find some kind of story emerging from a still image. This, I think, is a beautiful phenomenon.” (Lynch)
Until 16 March. 11am-8pm. Closed Mon, Tue.
