Patrick Zachmann

Share:

From February 14 to May 17, 2015, the Musée Nicéphore Niépce is presenting the exhibition Mare, Mater, with works by Magnum photographer Patrick Zachmann. In this series, Zachmann places the lives of refugees in relationship to his own family story.

At the centre of his work are people who have crossed the Mediterranean in search of a better life – and the mothers who stayed behind in North Africa. At the same time, the series took Zachmann in search of his mother's Jewish/Algerian roots: she too had undertaken the same Mediterranean crossing years earlier.

The photographer once said that he was using photography to try and create the family album he himself had never possessed.
