In the 1980's, Didier Brousse - Camera Obscura's founder -, held photo printing and framing workshops at a time when it was practically unheard of. On the other side of the Atlantic, galleries and spaces dedicated to photography were flourishing, but in France this remained farily untouched. Didier began to organise exhibitions in his workshop, featuring mainly contemporary photographers including Sarah Moon, Marc Riboud and Willy Ronis; as well as relatively unknown names like Christopher Taylor, Masao Yamamoto and Claudine Doury.
While the gallery might still herald 'traditional' black and white photography, it doesn't mean they don't think outside the box, with five or six exhibitions per year presenting various contemporary styles.
