Palais Galliera invites the French photographer Geoffroy Ménabréa to highlight the work of its future exhibition galleries on the ground floor.

Born in 1981, Geoffroy Ménabréa lives and works in Paris. After studying philosophy of art, he began to practice photography by assisting and collaborating with several photographers, such as Pierre-Olivier Deschamps at the Vu' agency, then Denis Darzacq, Frank Ferville and Claudine Doury. He also works with fashion photography alongside Vincent Peters, Miles Aldridge and Sølve Sundsbø. On the webzine "L'œil de la Photographie", his series "Icônes Familières" questions the idea of the sacred through the prism of the everyday and its triviality.

In 2010, his meeting with Gerard Rondeau profoundly influenced his photographic approach - with the "Hors Cadre" series, which exercises the power of the image evocation in art places under construction. In 2013, he followed the construction of the Philharmonie de Paris and today he continues his investigation on the Palais Galliera's work (*), seizing its metamorphosis to reveal an important part of its history.
