"Josef Koudelka, la fabrique d'Exils" is Josef Koudelka's first exhibition in Paris for 29 years. In 2016, the photographer donated the entire series of his Exiles series (75 photographs)to the Centre Pompidou. The exhibition, presented in the Galerie de Photographies, reveals thirty-five of the series' most iconic pictures, together with numerous unpublished images printed especially for the occasion. The circuit is rounded off with an extraordinary group of self-portraits taken by Koudelka during his travels, never shown until now.

The exhibition also presents, for the first time, the "contact sheet" on which he glued his images, organised by form or theme.

Through eighty photographs, the Centre Pompidou exhibition provides a truly rich and comprehensive presentation of this series. It explores how the project came about, shedding light for the first time on the "making" of Exiles.
