Paris has always been the place of a most effervescent creation. From the 1920s to the 1950s, the avant-gardes set the stage for a protean photographic modernity.
1922, publication of the delicious fields of Man Ray. 1954, that of Belleville Ménilmontant by Willy Ronis, marking the end of a nostalgic vision of Paris. Between these two dates, are presented a great number of exceptional books, for many not found and become objects of collection. As the photography book is closely linked to the history of graphic design, typography and layout, this book also reveals all the graphic effervescence that characterizes this period.
