Germaine Krull (1897-1985) – Un destin de photographe
Dates: June 2 – September 27, 2015
Venue: Jeu de Paume, Paris, France
From nudes to surreal collage, street scenes to portraits, a new exhibition charts the astonishingly modern work of maverick photographer Germaine Krull. A pioneer of photojournalism, bisexual Germaine Krull moved across Europe in the 1920s and 30s mixing with left-leaning intellectuals and pushing at boundaries, both in her work and as a woman. Germaine Krull then settled in Paris where she worked in the 1930s. After serving as a war photographer in 1943–1945, she moved to Thailand and then settled in India, where she converted to Buddhism and worked to preserve its cultural heritage.
Curator: Michel Frizot
