Login is anonymous. It connects visitors to one of two preset patron accounts which neither require nor accept user input.

We don't host any advertising service, neither do we use any tracking or Web analytics software.


We only use cookies necessary for managing sessions, particularly when a user logs in. There are three of these cookies:

  • wire, which is used for identifying sessions.
  • wire_challenge, which is used to verify the validity of a session and thus provide extra security.
  • fullsize_(...), which is used to validate patron access to full-size images.

These cookies are required to make the site fully operational. The first and the last expire at the end of a session, that is, when the browser is shut down. The second one, which adds a challenge key to the login session, expires after a month. These cookies can only be disabled via browser preferences, which will prevent users from being able to log in, or navigate the site as expected (i.e. the side navigation arrows won't function properly). is hosted by OVH, 140 Quai du Sartel - 59100 Roubaix - France. tel : +33 08 203 203 63.
