Regards d'artistes by Denise Bellon

Regards d'artistes is a special exhibition organized by les Arts Associes, a tribute to Denise Bellon, the legendary French photographer.
Currently in view on the platforms of the Saint-Germain metro station in Paris, this new exhibition displays around 100 images of artists like Miro, Prevert, Dali, Miller, Duchamp and many more.

Denise Bellon (1902-1999) was a pioneer in photojournalism. One of the original members of the Alliance Photo Agency, founded in Paris in 1934 and a precursor to Magnum Photo Agency, she was also a friend and associate of leading members of the surrealist movement from Dali and Duchamp, to Andre Breton.
