Guy Le Querrec: Conteur d'images

An exhibition of the Magnum photographer’s portrait of Breton society goes on show in his hometown

Photojournalist and Magnum photographer, Guy Le Querrec may have been originally from Brittany, but travelled the world over in his career.

In this new show at the Musée de Bretagne, Guy Le Querrec looks at the Breton society with a gaze that is both affectionate and distant. From 1965 to 1980, he made more than 5,000 photos in his native land, where the photographer says he “sharpened his eye”.

The photographs exhibited show daily life, family and work, and are testament to his attachment to the region.
