Photo pick of the day

Richard Kalvar: FRANCE. Paris. 1974.
14th arrondissement. “Ouest” street (rue de l’Ouest).

See all the photos from the new monograph edited by Robert Delpire. From the Magnum Photos website:

“Kalvar’s work often showcases his sense of humor, pushing ordinary things to their logical but absurd conclusions. ‘In life, I float in a world of ambiguity, where meaning is multiple and far from clear’, he explains. “If I let myself go when I photograph, it makes sense that I would have a tendency to do the same thing… So I think that my best pictures turn out to be witty, ambiguous, and full of strong feelings, often with a streak of absurdity.'”
