* Urban Eye Festival, in Corbeil-Essonnes. Free access until May 22. The itinerary of the exhibitions can be found on the festival website.

What does the feeling of love look like? It is to answer this question that Simon Baker, director of the European House of Photography in Paris, decided to organize one of the most daring exhibitions of the season. Fourteen photographers show their work representing love in all its forms: from romantic love at first sight to the unleashing of the most bestial erotic impulse… Sometimes tender, sometimes trashy, the images he has gathered here stir (and embrace) wide . From the prints of René Groebli, a great Swiss photographer who immortalized the honeymoon he made with his wife in the early 1950s, to the sensual portraits that Hervé Guibert devoted to his lovers. From the diaries of Nan Goldin and Nobuyoshi Araki where Eros so often rubs shoulders with Thanatos, (Araki draws the portrait of his wife, Yoko, even on her deathbed in 1990) to the images saturated with writings by RongRong
