Place de la Nation 1 :Manif Mai 2002 Revisitée / Demonstration May 2002 revisited

In the next few posts I will present re-edits of the four images that appeared in my second post on this blog back in February 2013 called Demonstration La Manif Paris 2002. I’ve also added a few more.

As these images form a natural series, it would have made sense to present them in a unique group or gallery , but since I deeply feel that each holds it own so to speak, I decided to present them individually in the hope that viewers, in this era of fast everything, will take a moment or two to look at all the beautiful faces of the people gathered that day to take a peaceful stand for “fraternité”.

David Vestal challenges, with his usual concision in the chapter “Print Aesthetics and Beyond ” of his book “The Art of Black Enlarging” ,the concept of the “vintage print” ,of first and limited editions of prints, and encourages us to revisit our images as our understanding of what an image wants, of how to edit it, can change in time, along with our craftsmanship.
