France, Paris, 1971, Champs Elysées Café

Richard Kalvar’s 1971 photograph of chairs piled up at a Champs Elysées café captures the essence of the city. The scene is one which could easily be encountered today in the French capital as the city’s cafes remain central to Parisian culture. There is something anthropomorphic about the chairs, which wait poised and silent under the awning, ready to spill out sociably across the pavement.

The Magnum at 70, Series 2 – Paris Collection is the second in a series of collections showcasing and celebrating the work of members of the renowned artists’ cooperative, Magnum Photos. The photographic and video works are released on Sedition as curated selections of digital editions as part of a yearlong partnership with Magnum Photos throughout 2017. The Magnum at 70 partnership celebrates 70 years of Magnum Photos by revisiting iconic, era-defining photographic works from the past seven decades and looking ahead to the digital future of photography.
