| When the world was still black and white: the first photo book by the French photographer
There are few parts of the world that Christian Maillard (*1944) has not yet seen. His journeys throughout Europe, the United States, South America, the Far East, and Africa have influenced his photographic gaze: for him, travelling and taking photographs have been inseparably connected since childhood. Unadorned and straightforward, his analog black-and-white photographs present reality as he encounters it. Whether people, landscapes, or street scenes, his gaze is always direct, personal, engaging, and makes reference to photographer greats such as Henri Cartier-Bresson or André Kertész.

The first monograph by the French photographer includes pictures taken all over the world between 1996 and 2016. An introduction by the FAZ journalist and photo specialist Freddy Langer provides a more specific classification of Maillard’s oeuvre.
