Gilles Peyroulet Gallery, created in 1987, has always had a strong involvement in the defense of photography as an exceptional medium. After having defended the generation of plastic photographers of the 90s and with a large collection of historical photographs acquired over time, she has focused for many years on European photography from the interwar period and the 20th century. With monographic or collective exhibitions within its walls or through its participation in fairs, the gallery has established a solid reputation for excellence. Its international clientele is made up of institutions, museums and private collectors from around the world. The gallery has participated in Paris Photo, and in the Photography show by AIPAD in New York for many years. Member of the CPGA (Professional Committee of Art Galleries), she is also a member of AIPAD (Association of International Photography ZArt Dealers, USA). Gilles Peyroulet Gallery presents photographs by Pierre Jahan.

The Jean-François Cazeau Gallery, named after its creator and host, is a reference for paintings, sculptures and drawings by artists of the surrealist movement. Eager to open his gallery to photography, Jean-François Cazeau was seduced by this surrealist sensitivity of Pierre Jahan, in particular his photomontages from the 80s which had rarely been shown. The Jahan photographs now stand alongside Giacometti’s “A Walking Woman”, drawings by Picasso, a sculpture by Miro or a composition by Matisse. Artists that Jahan has met and some even photographed.
