One, Marc RIBOUD, in black and white, has photographed Japan in 1958 – a body of word to (re)discover from a selection of vintage and modern prints entrusted by his heirs.

The other, Géraldine LAY, in colour, has wondered in the country four times three weeks (from 2016 to 2019) to discover the archipelago. Both, in front of the unknown, let the fragility of its perception guide them, without protocole or preconsidered depiction.

Free entrance from Wednesday to Saturday, 2pm to 7pm, and otherwise by appointment.
