French artist Catherine Balet, pays tribute to the great masters of photography by revisiting 176 years of photography. 
It all began in 2013, one summer morning in Arles, during the famous photography festival Les Rencontres photographiques. Ricardo Martinez Paz, as a young dandy aged 76, whose resemblance to Picasso is striking, is seated before bread rolls. He's wearing a sailor stripe jersey and his look is somewhat evasive. Catherine Balet stares at him and immediately thinks of the famous photograph of Picasso by Robert Doisneau. She grabs her camera and immortalises the very moment that would trigger her irresistible desire to go further. Two and a half years of intensive work will follow, leading these two friends to explore the whole history of photography, from the first self-portrait by Robert Cornelius in 1839 to today's selfies.
