Diane Arbus: A Printed Retrospective (1960-1971)

December 8th 2008 to February 8th, 2009

Dianearbus This retrospective of the works by Diane Arbus (1923–1971), featured by Pierre Leguillon, is the first organized in France since an exhibition at Centre Pompidou in 1980. It brings together a collection of the New York photographer’s images commissioned by the Anglo-American press in the 1960s.

The exhibition presents the original pages, from the magazines in which the images were published, including Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, Nova and The Sunday Times Magazine.

A selection from a collection of more than 150 photographs shows the great variety of subjects Arbus dealt with: photo journalism, anonymous and celebrity portraits (Norman Mailer, Jorge Luis Borges, Lilian and Dorothy Gish, Marcello Mastroianni, Mrs. Martin Luther King...), children’s fashion and several “photographic essays”— the images are captioned or commented on by the photographer herself. The choice of presenting the original magazines in the exhibition emphasizes the formal layout choices, and displays the photographs within the original social or political context of that time.

The Art of Lee Miller at Jeu de Paume

October 21, 2008 through January 9, 2009


From model, to surrealist muse, to Man Ray's partner and assistant, to photographer, this retrospective organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum presents the multi-faceted and extraodinary works of Lee Miller.

The prints on display represent the most beautiful and arresting of Miller's career - illustrating both the witty surrealist quality she is known for, but also a darker side captured by images taken as a combat photojournalist.

In addition to 130 prints, the exhibition includes magazines, three drawings, a painting and an excerpt from Jean Cocteau's film Blood of a Poet.
