Geneva is a melting pot at the heart of Europe. The presence of numerous international organisations and companies as well as the standard of living encourage large numbers of people from other countries every year to move to the city at the end of the lake. These residents from the four corners of the globe give Geneva its special character as an international city. Josh Fassbind wanted to meet these Genevans in transit or by adoption in order to reveal their visions of his native city. For each photograph, he asked the participants to pose in their favourite part of the city or of the canton and to describe their experience of the city in a single word. Faces of Geneva is a process of discovery and sharing on the theme of a common place of residence, a body of work on the multiculturalism that characterises our city.
