The Musée de l’Homme in Paris invites us to discover the works of Lekha Singh, a photographer who has traveled the world, meeting the women who carry the world.
They carries a part of the world
There are millions of women, carrying millions of kilos over millions of kilometres. Each, in its own way, carries a part of the world. In this new exhibition, photographer Lekha Singh pays homage to them. A series of powerful portraits to discover at the Musée de l’Homme from June 29, 2022 to January 3, 2023. Lekha Singh’s works allow us to discover harsh realities, but magnified by the eye of the artist, who tells the story of these Women who carry the world.
Lekha Singh also denounces global warming
On their heads, on their backs, on their shoulders, at arm’s length or against them, for centuries they have carried children, transported wood, water, food, bricks or mountains of cotton . Through this exhibition, which reveals the spectacular burdens that weigh on them, the American photographer Lekha Singh pays tribute to the women of the planet. Each in their own way, women carry a part of the world. It’s time to highlight them and that’s what American photographer Lekha Singh does brilliantly ! Asia, Africa, America: whatever their origin, their age, their skin color, the lives of these women are similar. Lekha Singh also denounces global warming, the advance of desertification, wars, globalization or the inequality of opportunities that prevent these women from getting out of their situation, despite all efforts.
The lives of millions of people across the globe.
The vibrant colors, the exceptional landscapes, the clear images, the beauty of these strong women transform this difficult subject into a magnificent journey. It’s a real love letter that the photographer sends to her muses, through shots that highlight the importance of their daily tasks, which are sometimes invisible. A very beautiful exhibition to discover at the Musée de l’Homme of Paris, to better understand the lives of millions of people across the globe.
