Illustrations of the book Les Merveilles du Louvre (Hachette, Paris, 1958) merge with found objects from the Plage des Phocéens, the beach upon which Aëgerter grew up in Marseille.

Louvre Plage photographs give the treasures of the Louvre museum a new dimension: the timelessness of the familiar objects meld with the iconic masterpieces. The eroded objects from different eras raise awareness about the transience of the found objects as well as that of the masterpieces.

The full series of 25 images is gathered in an archival box edition together with a selection of little stones and shells from the same beach.
