Musée d'Orsay: VU' at the Musée d'Orsay - Rip Hopkins

VU' at the Musée d'Orsay - Rip Hopkins

Rip Hopkins© Agence VU', 2006
Christian Caujolle founded the photography agency VU' in 1986 after working for the Libération newspaper, and in 2006 it celebrates its twentieth anniversary.

To mark this occasion, and linked to the Musée d'Orsay's own twentieth anniversary, it opened to the public on 6 December 1986. The VU' agency suggested giving a free hand to five of its greatest photographers: Gabriele Basilico, Rip Hopkins, Richard Dumas, Juan Manuel Castro Prieto, Stanley Greene. They have each photographed one particular aspect of the Museum – its architecture, staff, collections and its public. Their work will be shown in the Museum, in four exhibitions, from 5 December 2006 to 29 July 2007.
