The Musée de l’Élysée, located in Lausanne, Switzerland, is celebrating its thirty years’ anniversary. On this occasion, in an unprecedented gesture, the Museum is taking a look at its past in an original exhibition dedicated to its iconographic collection first created by Rev. Vionnet (1830–1914). The selection, distributed throughout all three stories of the museum, includes over 500 pieces selected from a repository of several hundred thousands items (including negatives, prints, contact sheets, albums) and covering the history of photography from its birth through the 1980s.
