Galerie de l’Institut Lumière

Photography of the seventh art

Alongside the Festival Lumière, this gallery highlights cinematographic photography all year round.

Last updated date : 28/02/2020
Galerie de l’Institut Lumière 3 rue de l’Arbre Sec - 69001 Lyon 1er

Photographs taken by film-makers such as Costa-Gavras, Jacques Henri Lartigue and Wong Kar Wai, as well as snaps taken backstage during filming, are displayed, offering a unique insight through the director's eyes.

This cultural venue creates a conversation between fixed photographic images and the moving images of cinema, while paying tribute to the Lumière Brothers, who began with photography and went on to invent cinema.

Collector's original visuals and voice have made it a big hit in Lyon. It offers locals a different view of their city: more modern, more urban, and even a little offbeat. In just a few years, this guide has become the repertoire of “places to be”. It opens doors to somewhat secret worlds – just the way we like them in Lyon.

The first thing you notice about Camille when you see her in the morning is her ready smile. Then you rapidly realise that although she looks very gentle, she is also amazingly efficient and insatiably curious. The very essence of a compulsive tester: nothing escapes her watchful eye. Not a single venue, festival or wardrobe sale, especially those that take place in her own neck of the woods on the slopes! You may even come across her and her little 4-year old, who accompanies her on most of her exploratory journeys!
