Jonas Cuénin, one of our New York contributors, has a passion for Irving Penn, and in particular one of the photographer’s most famous series: Small Trades. Jonas’ web series, “Of Pictures and Men” (Des images et des hommes) is a tribute to Penn’s work. It focuses on all those in the world of photography who never have the chance to be in the spotlight. Every two weeks, his videos will offer a look into the lives of these photography lovers.
In the sixth episode, Guillaume Geneste, a printer for professional Parisian photographers, opens the doors of his studio, La Chambre Noire. We discover a day in the life of one of photography’s oldest crafts.
