An artist’s reputation can be influenced significantly by the public availability of their work. In the case of the German photographer Germaine Krull, much of her pioneering work in the 1920’s on fashion, nudity and industrial imagery was for magazines, meaning that the images have stayed in corporate archives. Recent releases of some of this material is generating a critical reassessment and a retrospective at the Jeu de Paume in Paris.
