 Crossed by multiple plastic explorations, the questioning around matter irrigates all fields of photography, from the creative process to the presentation of images. Drawing on the BnF's rich collection of contemporary photographs, the exhibition reveals the capacity for metamorphosis of photographic material but also its possible disappearance. 


Through the unique works of nearly two hundred French and foreign

photographers, a sensitive and embodied history of photography is revealed.


Curated by Héloïse Conésa.

Japan Foundation

Los Angeles

exhibition & screening
23/06/02 - 23/08/05


The Japan Foundation, Los Angeles is pleased to announce its exhibition of French artist Chantal Stoman's ŌMECITTÀ, a one-of-a-kind photography project with a companion documentary. While in Japan in 2017, Chantal Stoman heard rumors of a town that had once been the epicenter of cinema during the Showa era, though no pictures nor online mentions of it existed. The name of this town was Ōme. After doing her own research and still not being able to find anybody in all of Tokyo who had been to or had even heard of Ōme, Chantal Stoman went there herself and was amazed at what she found. Decorating the town were hand-painted movie posters of classical Hollywood films, all created by one self-trained local artist. The town was beautiful, yet no photos of it could be found online or in any books. It had at one point been the heart of cinema in Japan, but now was a forgotten memory. Through her many trips back to the city over the course of three years, Chantal Stoman captured an intimate portrait of its urban beauty. Additionally, her work hugely impacted the town and its residents, shining light onto a town that was previously unknown to the world and forgotten by its own country. Chantal Stoman's documentary captures in real-time the reaction Ōme's inhabitants have to the town becoming famous once again due to the Ōmecittà project.
