French photographer, born Denise Loeb, in Paris. During the occupation, in 1942, she changes her name to Denise Colomb. In 1947, through her brother Pierre Loeb, who owned since the 20s, the famous Galerie Pierre, in Paris, she had the opportunity to meet the best artists of those times. She makes her first portrait of Antonin Artaud. This is the beginning of a long and remarkeable series of artist's portraits. Each portrait is the result of complicity, of a meeting between the photographer, the artist and his work. She takes pictures of Vieira da Silva, Arpad Szènes, Prinner, Calder, Picasso, Giacometti, Max Ernst, Magnelli, Nathalie Gontcharova, Soto, Le Corbusier, among others. Recently, in the beginning of 1995, she photographed African masks.
