Love photographs and the way they help us understand our world? Enjoy a bit of culture? If that’s you – Geneva’s first night of photography is a must.
No’Photo –Night of Photography – will feature several photographic exhibitions, including projections onto giant screens, in venues around Plainpalais.
The “Nocturne de la Photography” organised by the Ville de Genève, takes places on Saturday 14th October 2017 between 5pm and 2am and will cover various themes including sports, human rights and migration.
The event is organised as a partnership between museums, libraries, photo agencies, cinemas and the Geneva University of Art and Design.

Other interesting exhibitions:
Mark Henley – Asylum, documenting the daily life of asylum seekers in Geneva – Alhambra, 2nd floor.
