The Antimuseum in Paris is Yann Gourvennec’s photo blog. It was created nearly 20 years ago as it started as a repository for his watercolours. Photography came a bit later even though Yann has practiced photography for as long as he can remember.

Why a photo blog?

This photo blog is a means for Yann to show his work as well as provide explanations on the various shots he has decided to share with you here. Wherever possible he adds historical and explanatory notes about the places and people that are depicted in theses stories. 

You can catch a glimpse of his work as a professional portrait photographer on the photo studio page. The studio is located in the 15th district of Paris, France.
