Germaine Krull (897-1985) is one of the best-known figures in the history of photography, by virtue of her role in the avant-garde’s from 1920 to 1940, and a pioneer of modern photojournalism.

She gained her fame in Paris in the 1930s while being close friends with fellow artists Malraux, Gide, Cocteau, Kertész, or Sonia and Robert Delaunay.

Energetic figure with strong left-wing convictions, she had a very lively and itinerant life that inspired her work, travelling from Poland (where she was born) to North of India where she became friends with the Daila Lama and spent 20 years until her death as a practicing Buddhist.

Her work covers themes such as nudes, surreal collage, street scenes (especially the Parisian life, its modest, working population, the outcasts and marginals), portraits, the Eiffel Tower, industry and Marseille.

Germaine Krull employed a variety of techniques to capture the movement and excitement of life in the modern city. This retrospective gathers no less than 130 shots of the artists.
