There are still a few days left to discover or rediscover the superb photo exhibition in the Giron d’Art gallery, in the heart of Saint-Girons, Baléjou district. The exhibition “Gaza 2001, window on life” by Laurent Loubet can be enjoyed until Saturday May 11.

“An exhibition which appeals to the heart above all, introduces Virginie Papin, the gallery manager. It highlights Laurent Loubet, a photographer who deserves to be better known. He offers us a stroll through Gaza at the time of the second Intifada. There, we see people who continue to live, portraits of inhabitants of incredible truth and humility. This exhibition is above all an ode to humanity and restores dignity to people who are still particularly suffering. Today”.

“Window on Life” opens on that of men, women and children in times of war. Parachuted into the middle of a war that is not his, Laurent Loubet becomes a witness to humanity in the middle of hell. He captured the humanity of looks, of everyday gestures, of moments of life with a suspended grace, erasing the dramatic setting in which they lived. The light and soul of these inhabitants are magnified with poignant truthfulness through this gallery of portraits and landscapes soberly immortalized in black and white.

The exhibition “Gaza 2001 window on life” by Laurent Loubet can be seen until Saturday on the gallery’s opening days: Thursdays and Fridays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
