On October 19, Aperture Foundation, in partnership with Villa Gillet, presented an afternoon conversation between photographer Matthew Pillsbury and French geographer Michel Lussault. The event was organized for the launch of Matthew Pillsbury’s monograph, City Stages, as part of Walls and Bridges, a ten-day French-American arts and ideas festival curated by Villa Gillet.

Matthew Pillsbury presented a brief slideshow of his photographs capturing human activity in urban environments, ranging from isolated moments—when people were tuned into the omnipresent screens of tablets, laptops, televisions, and phones—to crowded spectacles at museums, parades, cathedrals, and even protests. In discussion, Pillsbury and Lussault shared observations and discussed the relationships between individuals, everyday environments, and the urban landscape.
