French photographer and cinematographer of Romanian origin, Eli Lotar (Eliazar Lotar Teodorescu) arrived in France in 1924. Close to Germaine Krull—Lotar worked as her apprentice for a time¬—his work was published in most of the avant-garde publications of the time, and featured in several major international photography exhibitions (Fotographie der Gegenwart, Fifo, Salon de l’Araignée, etc.).
Eli Lotar has left behind an impressive body of work, characterized by its audacity, inventiveness and his political activism during the interwar period.
The Eli Lotar Retrospective at the Jeu de Paume allows visitors to discover the scope of his work, from his contribution to Modernism to his social and political activism, as well as his connections to the Surrealist Movement.
