Gaston Paris:


Throughout the 1930s, Gaston Paris (1903-1964) was one of the pillars of the weekly magazine Vu, founded in 1928 by Lucien Vogel. The only salaried photographer, he shared the magazine’s pages with Laure Albin-Guillot, Germaine Krull, André Kertész, Martin Munkacsi, Man Ray and Robert Capa. Alongside his reports and portraits of artists and celebrities of the time, he produced strange photographic series inspired by surrealism, work which appeared in Détective magazine from the 1930s to the 1950s to illustrate its stories of gangsters and femmes fatales. His archives were purchased by the Agence Roger-Viollet shortly after his death.
