Private visit with the artist on the day when the museum is closed to the public.

In 1976, Jane Evelyn Atwood, not yet a photographer, had been living in Paris for almost five years. She bought her first ’real" camera, and met Blondine, as well as the other prostitutes on the Rue des Lombards, in the Beaubourg neighborhood. Two years later, Blondine sent her to Barbara, and then there’s Nouja, Miranda, Ingrid and all the others who live and work in Pigalle. Little by little, photo by photo, she manages to enter their lives and the world of prostitution. She creates her first stories with images taken
in the streets, the bars, and the seedy bedrooms of flop houses, bearing witness to the ordinary lives of those living on the margins of society. Without realizing it, Jane Evelyn Atwood was creating her first photo story that would be the very beginning of a remarkable and poignant body of work ; work always provoked by those she meets and her desire and need to « capture human dignity ».
