Catherine Balet - Looking for the Masters in Ricardo’s Golden Shoes 



Hommage à Robert DOISNEAU, Les Pains de Picasso, 1952

In 2013 French artist Catherine Balet was in Arles for Les Rencontres photographiques. While watching her friend, Ricardo Martinez Paz, over breakfast she was reminded of Robert Doisneau's famous photograph of Picasso, the resemblance of Paz to the artist striking. 

Little did she know that the portrait she took of Paz that day would be the catalyst for a body of work which she has spent two and a half years creating. 

The result is an extraordinary collection of portraits of Paz that explore the history of photography, from the first self-portrait by Robert Cornelius in 1839 to today's selfies. 

This is important work that introduces many of these photographic masters to a new generation hopefully piquing interest to learn more.
