How gratifying it is to unite, in this new event, so much high quality work by photographers who have marked and are still leaving their mark today on our history!

This first evening event in Geneva devoted to photography, No’Photo is being held in the Plainpalais district and at the Alhambra. A far cry from displays of photographic prints lined up on gallery walls, we’re inviting you instead to immerse yourself in whole new worlds seated in front of giant screens.

Museums, libraries, photo agencies, cultural actors, cinemas and the Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD – Genève) have joined with us to offer you a wonderful evening and I thank them for it.

«Photography is a brief complicity between foresight and chance», wrote the philosopher and economist John Stuart Mill. The No’Photo event will also surely be the brilliant outcome of the interaction between what was thought and what actually happens!
