About This Image

Signed in ink on the lower left recto of the print. Stamped on verso. Jean-Marie Auradon was born in the south of France in Languedoc in 1887. He moved to Paris and became well known for his large-scale nudes, which he posed like classic sculpture. In 1930 and 1936 he exhibited his work at the important Salon International D'Art Photographique de Paris, which were hosted by the Societe Francaise De Photographie. The judges for these salons were respectively Andre Steiner and Laure Albin-Guillot. He apparently became acquainted with Albin-Guillot, because most of his prints are very similar to hers--large pictorial nudes, flower studies, landscapes and still lifes in the Fresson process. Like Albin-Guillot, Auradon was a member of the Societe Francaise De Photographie. Besides exhibiting in France, Auradon contributed to several international salons, including the First International Tokyo Salon of Pictorial Photography at the Tokyo Imperial Art Gallery in 1935. Auradon wrote several books on photography. In 1946 he became a founding member of the important and influential Groupe des XV and exhibited at its salons. In 1951, Otto Steinert chose some of his work for the seminal exhibition "Subjektive Fotografie". His nude work was published in "Nus", an influential photography publication that contained the work of many of the top photographers of the early 1950s. He is in the George Eastman House and Auer & Auer databases. An article on his work appeared in Camera (1974). His work is included in the collection of the Bibliotheque National in Paris. Auradon died in 1958.
