The contemplative researcher lives aloof from society, a silent and unseen example it would seem. How is he to share his refined sensitivities, his ascetic and indeed aesthetic findings in ways that reveal their hidden purpose? (The Sritantra Project)

Paul Facchetti has passed away

Photographer and gallery owner Paul Facchetti died on 27 November 2010. He was 98 years old.

Facchetti was the consummate mid-20 to early-21st cen global art-historical patriarch. Paul was among Rene Laubiès' earliest supporters in the 50s in Paris, and his Galerie Facchetti was the first to exhibit a selection of Laubiès' work under the banner of nuagisme. In Portraits et Aphorismes (2001), Laubiès expresses great admiration for his long-time friend and colleague Paul Facchetti: "Few galleries can...pride themselves in so many discoveries that mark their era."
