Photography and music come together in perfect harmony at this one of a kind exhibit.
Ever imagined watching a symphony or listening to a picture? “Impossible,” we hear you splutter. Well, the Philharmonie de Paris would disagree. From an unlikely collaboration between French rock singer Matthieu Chedid and contemporary British photographer Martin Parr springs an unprecedented sensory experience. ‘MMM’, open to the public from October 4 2016 to January 29 2017, brings music and photography together in an original, bold and colourful artistic dialogue between two creatives – virtuosos in their respective fields.
Through this eccentric hybrid of mediums, the exhibit presents Parr’s photography matched with nine tracks especially composed by Chedid, engendering a musical-pictorial exhibit full of tenderness, poetry and irony. It truly is a sight for sore eyes… and ears.
