Founded as by Michel Brient in 1964 with Jean Adhémar, the Chief Curator of the Department of Prints and Photography at the Bibliotheque Nationale de France; by issue No. 7, the editorship passed to J. L. Swiners. With issue No. 30 it became a monthly, and ceased with No. 33.
As the title suggests, photojournalistic photographers were largely featured in articles and portfolios. Each issue included brief reviews of major exhibitions and new publications.
Additional shipping charges may apply given the weight of this magazine.
