The Photographers’ Gallery presents Bibi by the renowned French photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue. The exhibition will focus on photographs from the 1920s depicting Lartigue’s marriage to Madeleine Messager, known as Bibi, his first wife and the mother of his only child. This will be the first international showcasing of the exhibition following its unveiling earlier this year in Les Rencontres d’Arles.
Bibi will feature dozens of black and white photographs, including images from the couple’s visit to London. In addition to these, a number of rare colour glass plates and stereoscopic cards will also be on display. The photographs will be presented in chronological order and divided into three sections. These will trace Lartigue and Bibi’s relationship from their early days as a loving couple and glamorous socialites to subsequent upheavals and calamities, which eventually led to their separation.
