Place de Neuve 2 - 1204 Genève
The exhibition is dedicated to the works of the most prolific member of the “Boissonnas dynasty”, Fred Boissonnas (1858 – 1946). It sheds light on a whole aspect of his career that is both underappreciated and crucial: his journeys on the Mediterranean Sea, which he spent the first three decades of the 20th century roaming in search of light, of the Great Greece and free Egypt, of Homeric settings and Biblical landscapes.
Most of his photographs, presented here for the first time, are part of bequeathed collections now owned by the Bibliothèque de Genève. Both poetic and mesmerising, this exhibition also attempts to provide insight into the ambivalent and passionate relationship between Europe and the Mediterranean.
