Icons of Photography
a Legendary Journey

Welcome to the first Parisian museum entirely dedicated to iconic cameras.

Nested within the mythical Studio Harcourt, this one-of-a-kind museum invites you to embark on a fascinating journey through a century of photography. Discover 99 of the most iconic cameras ever produced through an experience that’s aesthetic, playful, informative, and a bit nostalgic.

Along this route, you’ll encounter cameras from legendary brands like Leica, Hasselblad, or Zeiss Ikon, each with its own story to tell, but you’ll also discover lesser-known gems of design and technology that have paved the way for the cameras we use today.

Whether you’re a analog photography enthusiast, a history buff, or just curious, we invite you to join us on this journey through the world of iconic vintage cameras.

A Unreasonable Collection

The displayed cameras belong to the 99 Cameras Club private collection and range from the early 20th century to the advent of digital photography, in the 1990s.

Gianpaolo Benincasa, an absolutely unreasonable collector, dedicated more than half a century gathering them around the world, leaving behind an eclectic collection that his son now has the privilege to share through the 99 Cameras Club.
