Like Marilyn Monroe for the Americans, Jane Birkin is like a member of the family for the French. We've been going to her since the 1960s! And since then, she has never stopped watering a collective unconscious. We know his films, his style, his successes, his commitment, his mythical couple with Serge Gainsbourg. Delicacy, love, familiarity, these impressions permeate the photographs that the Galerie de l'Instant exhibits today. She compares the work of Tony Frank, a photographer close to Gainsbourg, and Andrew Birkin, Jane's brother, who has photographed her all her life. Everything starts with a lunch with friends in Deauville, where both were present one summer in 1969. Finally, each person's work is presented, proposing a broad and complementary approach, witnessing so many frozen moments of Jane Birkin. More than a reactivation of our imagination around this French icon, we share these moments that Jane B. spent in front of the camera of these two photographers close to her.
