Organized By: Château de Versailles
Latest Activity: Mar 12, 2010
The Château de Versailles is putting on a new “history of photography” exhibition in 150 photos taken of the Chateau and park, ranging from the daguerreotype (1850) to the era of the digital camera (2010).
The Galerie de Pierre haute will become a genuine gallery of photography hosting the prints of great artists who have left their mark on the history of their art such as Eugène Atget, Man Ray, Brassaï, André Kertész, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Dora Maar, Robert Doisneau, Henri Cartier-Bresson... as well great names of contemporary photography: Robert Polidori, Raymond Depardon, Jean-Loup Sieff, Michael Kenna, Jun Shiraoka and Luigi Ghirri.
The exhibition will thus pay homage as much to the Château as to the art of photography.
