Does that not suggest the exhibition was beautiful, not necessarily the photos? Would not the photos be "belle"? ..une exposition de belle photos

That would be de belles photos.
But in that case wouldn't you rather say in english an exhibit of beautiful photos ?

Is that not what Duo is asking? With the question is he saying the exposition was beautiful or the photos at the exposition were beautiful? The way I am interpreting it is the expo that is beautiful. Likely wouldn't say that in English.

"photo exhibit"? Photography exhibit(ion) surely, unless it's an exhibit of a single photo.

"an exhibit" is what Americans (often) call an exhibition.
