New product

L'Ascenseur Végétal is now offering all available titles from the French collection "Photo Poche". This series of black pocket-size books is a staple among photobooks in France, and all photography lovers and amateurs have at least one in their bookshelves, often dozens!

This series initially curated by Robert Delpire and published by "Centre National de la Photographie" has been in the catalogue of "Actes Sud" for many years. Texts are in French only.

From Araki to Willy Ronis, thematic photobooks on self-portraits or nature in art, "Chroniques siciliennes" and about "Mineurs en peines" ... an important collection available in your bookstore.

We did not create a page for each book from the series but you have the possibility to order all the titles in the list below, all available for immediate shipping. To choose one reference, select the title in the drop-down menu "Photographer / title (Collection)" located below the price, then click on "Add to cart". Repeat if you want to add more references from this collection to your order.

The usual price for each reference is 13.00 €. However, 5 titles have a specific pricing (the price will adjust if you select one of them) : Anon (14.90 €), Je ne suis pas photographe (22.40 €), La photographie mexicaine (14.90 €), L'Objet Photographique (14.90 €), Magnum Photos (14.00 €).
