For the third hour of 5 Hours of Photography, we’ll be looking at Denise Bellon, mother of experimental film maker Chris Marker. She was a photojournalist in Paris in the 1930s and also worked closely with surrealists such as Andre Breton.

I hadn’t heard of Bellon until I started researching for this series… Ah, the wondrous advantages of blogging!
