Since its opening, the Pompidou Centre has been displaying photography in its permanent collections among paintings and installations, and has organized temporary exhibitions such as the Henri Cartier-Bresson retrospective in 2014. It recently decided to add to this a new gallery dedicated to photography. It is located in a no man’s land, aka the lower level. While the space seems somewhat limited for the display of one of Europe’s most important collections, the project should be welcomed. The Centre’s bookshop also deserves a visit, especially during sales periods to take advantage of bargains.
