Philippe Halsman, Astonish Me!

Exhibition from January 29 until May 11, 2014
Press conference : Tuesday January 28, 2014 at 10am

In 1921, Philippe Halsman found his father’s old camera, and spoke
of a “miracle” when he developed his first glass plates in the
family’s bathroom sink. He was 15 years old, and this was the first
encounter with photography of someone who was to become one
of the leading photographers of the 20th century.
