Rio, a french passion

Without attempting to exhaust the theme, this exhibition reveals treasures that have been preciously guarded in French institutions since the end of the 19th century. The photographic relationship between Brazil and France becomes even more intense nowadays, as proven by the important collection of contemporary Brazilian photography at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, represented here by a few examples which have Rio as a theme.

Rio, certainly a French passion, but also a passion of photographers from all around the world, and one that FotoRio and MAR are proud to share.
