The Bibliothèque nationale de France proposes the first large-scale exhibition dedicated to the ‘three Nadars’, Félix Nadar (1820-1910), his brother Adrien Tournachon (1825-1903) and his son, Paul Nadar (1856-1939) who were all photographers, painters, drawers and inventors… The exhibition path follows the Nadars’ workshop over the course of nearly a century, presenting some 300 pieces that disclose the specificities of each of the three photographers, their collaborations and rivalries.
