Arles 2014 : Nos coups de Coeur - Léon Gimpel

Arles 2014 : Nos coups de Coeur - Léon Gimpel | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Paris, August 1915: men are at war and women  are working. Far from their parents, the children of the rue Greneta play at battle. Equipped with only his camera and the inspiration of a few Poulbot drawings, Léon Gimpel faced this army of kids. From this encounter in the heart of the Sentier neighbourhood was born a series of staged photographic tableaux, alternating between colour (autochrome) and black and white. As the days went by, Léon Gimpel and his army of kids developed a kind of typology in miniature of images of the Great War. Almost all the archetypal scenes are represented .It is not death that Gimpel and the army of the rue Greneta playact, but heroism, courage, and the victory of the children of France.

At first glance, you can't understand why the child in the photo is not screaming its head off. Clamped in position by a sinister shrouded figure, the toddler seems solemn, certainly, but hardly terrified. Look a little harder, though, and you begin to unravel the visual and emotional dynamics in play. The bundled-up figure is actually the child's mother. And, far from spooking the toddler, she is holding it gently but firmly on her shrouded lap.
