Galerie Cinéma 2 - 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.


Rising with a smile on her face in the morning, always curious and enthusiastic to discover new places (and new dishes) in Lyon, Camille is what the specialists refer to as a « compulsive tester ». More partial to savoury than sweet (even though offering her a praluline – a delicious brioche filled with pralines – is a sure-fire way to get in her good books), Camille devotes herself body and soul to testing new food establishments in Lyon. Her radar for new addresses is legendary.
