This is Rose Valland, one of the heroes of Nazi-Occupied France. An employee of the Louvre, she kept records of the art stolen by Nazi officers—what was taken, from where, and by whom. She was instrumental in the postwar return of countless stolen pieces, and one of the most decorated women in French history.

Photography project by Cait Oppermann & Yael Malka
“My girlfriend and I went on a 2+ month long backpacking trip across Morocco, Turkey and several European countries. We are both artists and are making a book of photographs from the photos we collected on our trip. We created a few series throughout the trip and one of them is called “twenty one beds”, in which we took self portraits in every bed, couch or floor we slept on throughout the trip.” - Yaek Malka
They’ll also be launching their book Sea Blues at Molasses Books in Brooklyn on Friday May 17th!
