"Photographs in war" at the Musée de l'Armée

Your tickets for the exhibition


Explore the complex relationship between photography and war through the exceptional collection of more than 60,000 photographs, most of which are little known, kept at the Musée de l'Armée. 

To know

Since its appearance in the middle of the 19th century, photography has accompanied and illustrated major conflicts. Often reduced to the dimension of war reporting, photography used for military purposes also has a variety of uses: to inform, to legitimize, to denounce, to deceive, to bear witness, to remember...

The exhibition focuses on the images produced as works, but also on their context of creation, distribution and reception. It also questions their aesthetic character, by placing them in the artistic contexts of their time. "Photographs in War" invites us to take a critical and attentive look at the representations of conflicts of yesterday and today.
