At a time when many photographers were indifferent to the quality of prints intended for reproduction, Albin-Guillot sought to invest hers with artistry and individuality. In tandem with her husband’s research in micrography and in collaboration with Pierre Fresson, she published a volume of 24 photomicrographs of crystals … exquisitely printed on various colored and metallic papers. Later, she and Fresson also collaborated on similar works, which were used as elements of the luxury liner Normandie’s interior design.As chief archivist in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts' photographic archives, she actively sought to get photography officially recognized and preserved. In 1933, she helped create the national Cinemathèque at the Palais de Chaillot, as well as its photography museum. She became friends with many notable French literary figures including André Gide, Jean Cocteau and Paul Valery, creating memorable portraits of them and often providing images for their works.
