La MEP – The best photo exhibitions

La Maison Européenne de la Photographie is located in the lower Marais, a district very popular with tourists because of its pretty streets and many shops. This museum is a must in Paris for all photography lovers. I often go there when I am interested in the temporary exhibition of the moment. Photos of more or less well-known artists on various themes are on display.

One exhibition that particularly impressed me in May 2018 was that of James Nachtwey, who took pictures of scenes of war and misery in underdeveloped countries. Through his shocking and moving photographs, the artist criticized the war by showing its dramatic consequences on the populations. Often, the photo exhibitions that take place at la Maison Européenne de la Photographie are engaging. Sometimes they are also very strange and surprising.

Besides that, the place is very beautiful. A large old wooden staircase in the middle of the house allows you to go from one floor to another. To know what the current exhibition is, I advise you to look in advance on their website.
