Nicolas Bouvier: déambulations japonaises

[Translate to English:] Japon, mur (1964-1966), © Eliane Bouvier et Musée de l'Elysée, Lausanne - Fonds Nicolas Bouvier

The exhibition presented at the Centre Culturel du Manoir (Cologny) is a stroll through Japan; unpublished photographs, in colour and black and white, from his three successive trips: between 1955 and 1956, 1964 and 1966, then in 1970 for the Osaka World Exhibition.

A journey between old and new Japan through very different images. Portraits, landscapes and compositions follow one another along the paths travelled and with the delicate approach that Nicolas Bouvier has always put forward, in the same way as he has done in his stories.

Opening: May 22, 2019 from 6pm
