Exhibitions: Jean-Pierre Laffont's "Extraordinary" NYC

By David Schonauer   Thursday November 8, 2018

Jean-Pierre Laffont left France and moved to New York City in order to become a photojournalist. In 1968 he and his wife, Eliane Laffont, opened the American bureau of the French photo agency Gamma, and he went on to have the kind of career he’d dreamed of, notes The New York Times. An exhibition opening tonight at the Leica Store in SoHo, “New York Down and Out,” features Laffont’s photographs of the city from the 1960s and 1970s, which the photographer calls an “extraordinary for photojournalists in America.”
