Daile Kaplan, director of Swann’s Photographs Department, and Bill Hunt, photo collector, author and Swann friend, are exhibiting collections at the Rencontres d’Arles photography show in France.
For decades Daile has been collecting what she calls Pop Photographica: three-dimensional objects adorned with photographic images. 550 objects from her collection will be on view at the Bureau Des Lices, and Daile will host the exhibition’s opening and a guided tour, as well as taking part in a round table discussion and symposium.
The W.M. Hunt Collection, titled Foule, contains photographs of groups–with eye-grabbing images of clubs, teams, graduations, parades, rallies, clans, fraternities, assemblies, ceremonies, choruses, mobs and more. It is at the Palais de L’Archeveche. Both exhibitions are up from July 7 to September 21. For more information, visit http://www.rencontres-arles.com.
