On view for only 6 more days (through Monday, 14 January 2013) at the Centre Georges Pompidou is an important collection of photography that spans three decades of artistic output in Paris by the leading photographers of the day: Man Ray, Brassaï, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and more. Divided into 5 distinct sections, Voici Paris outlines the defining stylistic movements that emerged over the course of these three decades, from the rise of photography as an art rather than documentary form in the 1920s to neo-classicism, surrealism, the development of the press and the need for advertising imagery, and documentation of daily social life.  In this instagram-happy world of today, Voici Paris provides a unique opportunity to see works by the original iconoclasts of photography, long before Susan Sontag’s declaration that “…Photography is dead” and the rise of photoshop and the commodification of imagery in the digital era.

Voici Paris: Modernités Photographiques, 1920 – 1950 (La Collection de Christian Bouqueret) runs through Monday 14 January 2013, every day except Tuesday from 11am – 9pm, €13.
