Muses d'Orsay

Muses d’Orsay is my response to a commission from the Musée d’Orsay asking me to photograph the museum’s employees in their place of work. With the Musée d’Orsay housing the national collection of 19th century works, I suggested that each employee take his or her own photograph with a rubber bulb snap like in the old days. Each person had ten takes, in other words a roll of film. It was up to each to choose when and how they would be photographed. So they became artists for the time it took them to photograph themselves and thus assume responsibility for their own image.

Anne Véron Communications Assistant with the museum since 2003. Favorite work of art: L’Enfant au pâté de sable by Pierre Bonnard : « I arrange advertising partnerships with radio and television stations and the written press. I also take part in finding sponsors for the exhibitions. In return, the museum puts reception space at their disposal for their soirées. To bring a negotiation with a sponsor to a successful conclusion is always an intense moment. »
