For the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Paris, they have a beautiful exhibit about the liberation shown through photographs. Paris Freed, Paris Photographed, Paris Exhibited shows images of the liberation, and Vichy, and everything else that we discuss in class. It's so moving to see the experiences we study captured in photographs.
The Institut Lumiere, in Lyon, is dedicated to telling the story of the Lumiere brothers, who contributed to both cinematography as well as photography with the invention of the blue plates and autochrome plates.
I think it is so fascinating to think how photographs have helped change the world, as well as helping an individual tell a story that needs to be told.
