Running for more than 600 issues between 1928 and 1940, the French weekly magazine VU pioneered the art of photojournalism. Using photographers of the calibre of Brassai and Kertesz, boldly designed spreads, exciting photo-stories and striking montages, it reported on the arts, entertainment, and events at home and abroad, including chilling reports from Hitler's Germany. Lavishly illustrated in colour throughout, this anthology showcases the magazine's finest moments, offering an unparalleled insight into the birth of the modern media.
