Say Cheese!

A History of French Dining and Photography

The exhibition Say Cheese! shows the evolution of the representation of France at the table in parallel with the evolution of photography, from 1900 to today. With autochromes from WWI and #foodporn images, amateur photos and original works by great names (Robert Doisneau, Marc Riboud, and Martin Parr, to name only a few), clips from television programs and recipes from Elle magazine, Say Cheese! retraces the unique history of French people’s relationship with their meals.

Exhibition curators: Floriane Doury, Nicolas Havette, Pierre Hivernat and Elisabeth Martin.
Exhibition accessible on presentation of the Rencontres d’Arles 2018 pass.
