The exhibition Archéologues à Angkor, archives photographiques de l'École française d'Extrême-Orient [Archaeologists at Angkor; EFEO photographic archives] is running at the Cernuschi Museum from 10 September 2010 to 2 January 2011.
One hundred and eight photos from the EFEO archives present several of the Angkor temples before their clearing, and then when they were restored. The temples shown include Banteay Srei, the Baphuon, Angkor Wat, and Neak Pean. Four watercolors by Jean Commaille, the first conservator at the Angkor site, and two viewers for glass stereoscopic images-the first photo-graphic record-round out the exhibition.

The film Angkor, l'aventure du Baphuon [Angkor, the Baphuon adventure] is being shown in the museum lecture room every morning at 11:30 a.m. during the entire run of the exhibition.
