Paris is considered as the cradle of photography because it is there that photographic technology first emerged in 1839. From the very beginning, the city lent itself very easily to ambitious photographic projects and thanks to its artists, it proved to be the ideal breeding ground for a new medium, which was photography.

The Hamburg exhibition aims to show how artists engaged in photography saw, experienced, and captured Paris with their cameras. It covers at once, the full spectrum of photographers including those with a documentary interest as well as those who instilled personal feelings into their work.
