In October 1938, Hélène Roger-Viollet and her husband-to-be Jean Fischer, both passionate photographers and travelers, purchased Laurent Ollivier’s store located at 6 rue de Seine in Paris, and created the “Documentation Photographique Générale Roger-Viollet”. After WWII, they embarked on an extensive acquisition policy and built up a photographic collection unique in Europe, covering over 150 years of French and international history. At the death of its founders in 1985, the agency and its collections were bequeathed to the City of Paris.
