The photo show of Laure Albin Guillot

While Laure Albin Guillot shook up the codes of society between the two wars by launching into photo at more than 40 years old, she also contributed in making photography an art in its own right. The Jeu de Paume museum is featuring a beautiful retrospective of the one who was a reference in the  30s and 40s.

At the beginning of the Twenties, she took fashion photos for Vogue. From her anonymous portrait to her  illustrations of scholastic works, including her famous nudes and her photographs of microscopic preparations, this eclectic artist  played with light and did as many prints as she need to reach perfection.
