Agnès Vardab. May 30, 1928. Brussels, Belgium - March 29, 2019. Paris, France.
┘ If we opened people up, we’d find landscapes. Me, if we opened me up, we’d find beaches. ┌ *Les Plages d’Agnès
Agnès Varda’s films, photographs, and art installations focuse on documentary realism, feminist issues, and social commentary with a distinctive experimental style.
Film historians have cited Varda's work as central to the development of the French New Wave; her employment of location shooting and non-professional actors were unconventional in the context of 1950s French cinema. Among other awards and nominations over her career, she received honorary Palme d'or and Academy Awards, won a Golden Lion and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

At the beginning it was the idea of building a small arts library. Then, little by little, the commitment to share it.
Choice, preference, ignorance, evidence, all assumed.
A desire to discover, an encouragement to remember. Sometimes.
