Maison Européene de la Photographie
Free Wednesdays from 5pm - 8pm.
The Maison Européene de la Photographie (the European House of Photography), situated in the historic heart of Paris, is a major center for photographic art. It houses an exhibition center, a large library, a video viewing facility with a wide selection of films by or about photographers, and an auditorium. It is designed to make the three fundamental photographic media — exhibition prints, the printed page, and film — easily accessible to all.
The hôtel Hénault de Cantobre, which houses the Maison Européene de la Photographie, was built in 1706 and is an attraction in its own right. The façade overlooking the street, the period ironwork, and the central staircase are all examples of classical French architecture.
