MORE INFORMATION ABOUT DELIVERY

The artist

Roger Schall, born in 1904, is a French photographer who deeply influenced the thirties. With the arrival of the Leica and Rolleiflex, he produced numerous photo reports that were printed in top international magazines such as Vu, Vogue, L’illustration, Life, or Paris-Match… He thus covered many current events and in particular, he focused on everyday life in Paris, his favourite subject, which he photographed before, during, and after the German occupation.  ...

About the artwork

From the beginning of his career in the 1930s, Roger Schall produced a significant amount of photographic reports on Paris. Like his contemporary, Robert Doisneau, he was attentive to ?the continuous, free show of everyday life?. Both journalistic and artistic, his photos capture the energy that emanated from the capital city in the middle of its economic, artistic, and cultural boom, although it would soon go to war. He photographed Parisians in their day-to-day world, often secretly, silhouetting their outlines and integrating them within the urban landscape. By favouring formal research and original points of view, the photographer brought a fresh perspective to the famous landmarks of the city, such as the major avenues, the Champs Élysées, Montmartre and the banks of the Seine. Here, the City of Lights is shown in all its splendour, accentuated by sharp contrasts of light.

As Damien Dufresne says himself: "I let my hands do the talking". His approach is totally new in that it's at the crossroads of makeup, body art, artistic direction and photography. The resulting complexity, technicality and beauty are impressive. Damien Dufresne, a make-up arti...

Ferocious beauties isolated from all context, as though they had been captured in their most secret intimacy, this is the remarkable artistic gesture of Peruvian photographer Pedro Jarque Krebs, restoring to the animals some of their stolen dignity. After studying philosophy at t...
