The Memory of the Future

The second volume in the “Collection - Musée de l’Elysée” illustrates the rich diversity of photographic techniques, showcasing the Musée de l’Elysée’s collections. Tatyana Franck conducts two interviews, one with Anne Cartier-Bresson, enabling the reader to retrace the history of photographic processes and understand contemporary photographers’ fascination with these early techniques. The other, with the artist Oscar Muñoz, looks at his career path and conceptual approach. An article by Martin Vetterli, director of the LCAV at EPFL, offers a scientific perspective of image reproduction technologies.
