The Musée des Arts Décoratifs will unveil, from their own collections, the exhibition Photo Stories, an assemblage of almost never-seen photographs from the worlds of fashion, architecture,landscapes, interior design and advertising. These works, dating from 1840 to the present day, were selected from the exceptional collection of over 350,000 photographs held by the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
Through 400 original prints and negatives, Photo Stories will retrace over a century and a half of photography. The exhibition will highlight works that have immortalized the genre, including those by renowned photographers such as Eugène Atget, Laure Albin Guillot, Dora Kallmus (known artistically as Madame d’Ora), Man Ray, Cecil Beaton, Robert Doisneau, Bettina Rheims and David Seidner.
In this context, two photographs by Valérie Belin from the catalog of the exhibition "Garde-Robes" (1999) are presented.
