An exhibition by renowned French photographer Brigitte Lacombe will be organized in the National Gallery of Bosnia and Herzegovina to mark the 25th Anniversary of the Sarajevo Film Festival.
The exhibition will consist of 40 large prints, which represent rare and intimate moments from Lacombe’s long time collaborations with influential filmmakers, and a revelatory insider look at cinema.
Lacombe first began working on movies in 1975, when she was invited to the sets of Alan J. Pakula’s ‘All the President’s Men’, and soon after on Steven Spielberg’s ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’.
She is acclaimed for her cooperation with prominent movie directors, as well as for making formal portraits of the actors - including Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Tilda Swinton, Cate Blanchett, and Joaquin Phoenix, among others - in and out of character during the process.
For the last 25 years she has been working with Martin Scorsese in all of his productions, most recently on ‘The Irishman’, coming out in fall 2019.
The exhibition of photographs, taken between 1975 and 2017, presents a selection of Lacombe’s artwork, and offers a personal and rare glimpse into contemporary cinema.
Black-and-white and color photographs are framed in walnut wood frames, specially created for this exhibition by the Bosnian company ‘Artisan’, in line with the artist’s wishes.
Opening of the exhibition is scheduled for Saturday, August 17, at noon. The exhibition will remain open until September 7.
