Raymond Depardon revisits his landmark 1981 Correspondance New-Yorkaise in a special commission for the FIAF Gallery.

New photos taken daily from May 2-9, 2017 will be displayed alongside his original 1980s series, creating a rare portrait of the city across decades.

In 1981, Raymond Depardon’s La correspondance New-Yorkaise was published in the Libération newspaper in France. Composed of humorous, observational, photographic notes—and no topical news—the newspaper dedicated a full page to this correspondence every day for a month. It was a pivotal moment both in French photography and in Depardon’s career. La correspondance New-Yorkaise marked a turn toward the “new journalism” of the era, which fed on daily life and featured first-person, subjective writing.

36 years later, this major French photographer and filmmaker takes a new look at New York, continuing his rare portrait of one city’s unexpected spaces. This exhibition takes place during the cycle of events celebrating 70 years of the Magnum Photos agency.

Exhibition curated by François Hébel
