Le Midi antique: Photographie et monuments historiques (1840-1880). While Rome and ancient Greece have already been the subject of photographic exhibitions, the South of France has never before been shown or studied from this angle. The subject is touched upon in part in works devoted to the Mission héliographique (Philippe Néagu, 1980, Anne de Mondenard, 2002), in Gilbert Beaugé's La Photographie en Provence (1995) and in a monographic study of Dominique Roman (Arles, 1997). In addition to the intrinsic quality of many of the images, particularly those from the 1850s (Baldus, Piot), which show the evolution of the way in which monuments are viewed in relation to prints, the exhibition also evokes the close links between the "patrimonialization" of sites and monuments (some of which have been cleared and restored since the early 19th century, others are currently being restored, such as the Nîmes arena, the Orange theater or the Vienne temple) and the advent of photography (in 1839, Daguerre's process was made public, and a year later, the first list of state-protected historic monuments was drawn up)..
