At the invitation of The Ministry of Culture and PARIS PHOTO, independent curator Fannie Escoulen has included Carey’s Crush & Pull series among the selections for PATHS ELLES X PARIS PHOTO. As mentioned in the press release: “Escoulen leads us on a promenade along the aisles of Paris Photo retracing the history of photography through the prisme of women; a historic and contemporary stroll in search of treasures unearthed by exhibiting galleries and publishers.”
In addition, JHB Gallery is delighted to announce that this series has been selected for the JPMorgan Chase Art Collection “Curators’ Highlights” guide. The onsite guide includes 20 of the JPMorgan selected “must see” photographs and photo-based works at the participating galleries at PARIS PHOTO.
