An exhibition of photographs on the border
Gédéon Regard and Adrien Bonnefoy, image-makers in the countryside at the beginning of the 20th century, immortalised the inhabitants of "Grand Genève" long before it was named. Surveying the territory, the two Savoyard photographers, originally from Feigères and Fillinges, have frozen their land in time. They have both left a unique view of the Genevan countryside.
An exhibition proposed by the Bibliothèque de Genève and Paysalp, an association that promotes the heritage of Haute-Savoie.
