The Paris premiere of the film Abbas by Abbas opened to a full house at Max Linder Panorama on Friday, 8 November 2019. Abbas’s family, old friends and the “who’s who” of photography and journalism turned out in force to hear the last words of one of the world’s greatest photographers. After the screening, everyone gathered at Café Delaville – where artists have come together for generations – to celebrate the life and work of the photographic legend.
