Biographical / Historical

Voila (Voilà, l'hebdomadaire du reportage) was a French magazine known for its use of photography. It ran from 1931 to 1950, and was published by Gaston Gallimard. It was directed by the brothers Joseph Kessel and Georges Kessel, and later by Florent Fels. The magazine covered political topics, but was considered less political than VU, another photographic magazine published around the same time. However, Voila did contain contributions from many prominent French and European writers, such as Surrealist poet Robert Desnos and Belgian novelist Georges Simenon.
