Paris to Victoria: exhibit of rare James Joyce photos

Permalink 06/03/14 13:43 , Categories: Uncategorized

For the first time in Canada, British Columbians have an opportunity to view a rare collection of photographs of James Joyce in Paris taken in 1938 by the young Franco-German photographer Gisèle Freund.

According to UVic Joyce scholar Dr. J. Matthew Huculak, “James Joyce loved Paris—it was his spiritual home—but he absolutely hated being photographed. In 1938, Freund convinced Joyce to let her take a series of photographs that would become famous around the world. The result was the only colour photographs of Joyce ever taken – one which was chosen as the cover of Time Magazine in 1939.”

What: “Paris to Victoria: a Photographic Exhibition of Gisèle Freund’s Paris”
When: June 16 to July 10, Monday to Friday from 10:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Where: Room A003, McPherson Library Special Collections Reading Room

The exhibition is a joint project of the UVic Libraries, the Department of English, the Modernist Versions Project and the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab.
