There's also this Picasso exhibition in three places round the town -
Grand Palais is one I think.

La chambre claire is the original title of a book by Roland Barthes, a
superb read.

For some reason the English version got a Latin title: Camera Lucida.  I
have a copy somewhere.  I agree with Philippe -- highly recommended if you
want to explore how photography intersects with memory and meaning.  But
pretty serious stuff and not for every reader.
