Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume, Tuileries gardens, Paris
The Jeu de Paume (website) is a Museum (Photography) in Paris.
Official description from Jeu de Paume:
A leading pole for the exhibition of photographic and other images whose resolutely open approach embraces all periods (from the 19th to the 21st century) and practices (photography, cinema, video, installation, etc.), Jeu de Paume produces, coproduces and hosts exhibitions as well as film programmes, symposiums, and public activities, and also pursues a publishing programme. It shows both established figures (Sophie Ristelhueber, Martin Parr, Robert Frank, Jean-Luc Moulène, Bruno Serralongue, Edward Steichen, Richard Avedon, Lee Miller, Lisette Model, André Kertész) and emerging talents (Cyprien Gaillard, Denis Savary, Virginie Yassef, Mario García Torres, Agathe Snow, Tris Vonna-Michell), attracting a considerable and varied public whose interest and support is growing steadily: to give an idea, attendance increased from 200,000 visitors in 2006 to over 320,000 visitors en 2008.
Wikipedia excerpt:
