"Strokes of Heaven in the Hands of Time"

The first exhibition in Spain featuring the work of French artist Jean-Luc Milayne.

The Palacio de Velázquez (in Retiro Park) is the venue for this retrospective of photographs produced by Jean-Luc Milayne since the 1970s.

This French artist is extremely aware of the need to protect the environment. It is therefore no surprise that birds are often the subjects of his images. In the selection of photographs shown in this exhibition, the artist captures birds in their natural habitats and in captivity, as is the case of his series on farms in rural France.

'Taken over the course of a nearly 30-year career, his photos are documents of nature focused on the details of a certain time and place. Paradoxically, they also have a universal meaning, including contrasts between calm and movement, light and shadows,' according to the museum.

This show organized by the Reina Sofía includes works by Milayne from collections of institutions the world over, from Switzerland and France to the United States.
