Christophe Goeury and the Millon Auction House are pleased to announce their upcoming prestige photography auction of exemplary 19th and 20th century vintage and later prints, and Contemporary photography, that will be held in Paris in the Hôtel Drouot on November 5th.

The first collection is an ensemble of 65 lots, over 100 vintage and later prints, by the Franco-Russian Photographer Genia Rubin. Known as a fashion photographer, Genia Rubin’s prints integrate into a Surrealist canon. Rubin's portraits defy notions of "normality" and go beyond pure advertising as is common with Fashion photography of the 1930s-1950s. With strange shapes, floating body parts and bizarre landscapes, as well as theatrical lighting and dramatic shadows, these composed scenes reject a rational way of seeing the world, turning instead to a dream-like and imaginative environment. This collection is presented for the first time at auction and offers a significant range of Genia Rubin's photographic work. (Lot 159: 1 000 / 1 500 €)

The second collection, from the family estate of Jean-François Bauret, presents a series of dramatic nude portraits. The photographer’s son summarizes the artist’s work beautifully: "The people Jean-François Bauret photographs are often stripped naked, but we tend to talk more about the genre of portraiture rather than the nude. If he has placed the body on the same plane as the face, it is the gaze of the subject that first catches the attention of the viewer, as their personality is revealed. Merging the two genres of portraiture and the nude is unexpected and modern because Bauret choses his subjects more for their character than for their beauty. His nude portraits are controversial because they were aesthetically designed to convey a truth about the artificial representations of the body. No optical effects, light, scenery, accessories, staging. No particular expression, no eroticism. An almost absolute stripping. An image a little austere, difficult, but moving, touching, sensual, sometimes, always in the nature of the subject that presents itself to the photographer." With over 30 large scale vintage prints, these works will complement all collections of portraits or nudes. (Lot 259 - 1 500 / 2 000 €)
Alongside these collections are works covering the history of the photographic medium.
