This book offers a unique view into the creative universe and artistic circle of agnès b. by bringing together major works she has collected and the special contributions by personalities such as Kenneth Anger, Jonas Mekas, Jonone, Futura, Edouard Glissant, Harmony Korine, and Hans Ulrich Obrist.

If the collection revolved initially around modern photography, with major ensembles by Brassaï, Arbus, Levitt, and Weegee, as well as classic pieces by Atget, and Walker Evans, it soon developed into contemporary art and photography, with works by William Eggleston, Andy Warhol, Larry Clark, Basquiat, and Nan Goldin, as well as Seydou Keïta, Richard Billingham, and Martin Parr. It also includes works by Cameron Jamie, Absalon, Mona Hatoum, Chéri Samba, Jim Shaw, Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, and Malick Sidibé, among others.
