Is Amateur Photography Part of the History of Photography?

10 July 2014.

 

The recovery of amateur photographs is booming and has even produced a few experts.

With the artists Mazaccio & Drowilal, Vik Muniz, Joan Fontcuberta, Erik Kessels and Philippe Jacquier, director of the Lumières des Roses gallery.
