Selected exhibition photo 2 of 2: The Brothers Godard by Louis-Jean Delton.⠀
“Mostly, this image makes me laugh. The brothers, famous balloonists of the time, appear dignified–above it all. But they also seem vulnerable, and to the 2016 observer, a bit out of place. They look almost imprisoned, although we know they are in the balloon by choice. Graphically, it’s quite an arresting image, with sharp contrasts of shape and light.”⠀

Louis-Jean Delton, The Godard Brothers, 1890. Gold chloride print on printing-out paper. Collection of Michael Mattis and Judy Hochberg.⠀
