I'm just back from Paris where I went to see the Jean-Paul Goude retrospective at Les Arts Decoratifs. If you're in Paris before the 18th March then I highly recommend seeing this show. Goude was doing things with pre-Photoshop photo manipulation by taking a scalpel to large format transparencies that is truly awe inspiring. He also has a pretty singular aesthetic vision. He's not purely a photographer although that's where the bias is so figured this would be the best section to put it in.
