"The true photographer is the witness of each day's events, a reporter," Germaine Krull once wrote. Hailed in 1928 Paris as a leading photojournalist, on a par with László Moholy-Nagy and André Kertész, Krull was also among the avant-garde, often compared with Man Ray, and counted André Malraux, Colette, Jean Cocteau, and André Gide among her friends. She was the first to publish her images in book form as an end in itself, and her photobooks Métal and Etudes de Nu were groundbreaking. With 200 duotone images, this catalog from an exhibit at Jeu de Palme revisits Krull's work through newly available photos, focusing on her modernist vision and her innovative role in print media, fashion illustration, and documentation.
