  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1929, famed French photographer Florence Henri was commissioned to produce a series of advertising photographs for the company La Lune Pasta, a body of work that still stands as the most extensive series of product photographs by Henri to survive. These commercial photographs showcase the success of modern advertising in transitioning from a more simplified and direct illustration to a more Formalist abstraction that presents the product in unconventional ways.
