From March 21, 1928, to May 29, 1940, more than 600 issues of the French weekly magazine VU were published. VU initiated and developed the idea that extensive use of photography could produce an objective view of the world, like a movie newsreel on paper. The magazine covered an eclectic range of subjects including politics and current events, social issues, discoveries, disasters, the arts, sport, entertainment: anything that would surprise or delight. VU also made use of photomontage as a stte-of-the-art vehicle for pointed political or social citicism. This anthology offers a superb snapshot of an entire era, providing an unparalleled insight into the emergence of modern media.
