Current exhibition:

L’objet photographique
Une invention permanente
20 April - 19 June 2011

 

Today, the technical possibilities of photography have become extremely diverse. Traditional processes, often little understood even today, are being replaced by digital or hybrid technologies that are sometimes hard for the general public to grasp. With today's photography rediscovering alternative traditional techniques, it is vital to analyse the technical knowledge that helps us to understand the exact nature of photographic works, both past and present.
This exhibition looks at photographic devices (pinhole cameras, lenses, etc) and the processes that are used to produce or modify photographs: (direct positives, negatives, printing, etc), all of which make up the material history of photography. After visiting this exhibition, which creates a dialogue between vintage and contemporary images and which spotlights the photographer's studio, visitors will be in no doubt that every 'photographic object' is truly unique.
