Pain and beauty through the unique lens of Christine Spengler

Pain and beauty through the unique lens of Christine Spengler
Text size Aa Aa

In 1979 during the Islamic Revolution in Iran French photographer Christine Spengler donned the veil to snap Iranian women.
It was time of volatile, high-octane fanaticism, but she did have one advantage: “A man could never have done that without being accused of being a spy hiding under a veil. For me it was easy,” she explained.
She also shot pictures in Afghanistan: “This series was immediately published by Paris Match. Those women carrying babies wrapped up, wearing eyeliner like Egyptian mummies, you couldn’t tell whether they were still alive. I am still a very engaged woman and I document grief and pain in black in white, the beauty of the world in colour, with the flaming colours, which I never used while covering wars.”

Christine Spengler has a major show in Paris, which exhibits her work from Northern Ireland, Cambodia and the Middle East as well as he pictures that celebrate "the beauty of the world."
Her show ‘Christine Spengler Opera du Monde 1970-2016 is at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie de Paris.
