Spotlight: Ariana Museum

I had the opportunity to work in Geneva a few times and like many other cities I’ve been in, I have a few places I love to go back to. I usually do not work in the same location twice but some of them are so unique so huge that it is difficult to explore them fully during a single session.

The Ariana Museum is definitely one of them, and I would love to have a 2nd chance to make new images there with the experience I now have. So let me take you with me to Geneva, inside the Ariana Museum. Like many other places, I felt frustrated after these photoshoots. I wish I had more time and I wish we had access to the entire museum, I wish I had my team with me for more ambitious creation.

I encourage people to work in tough conditions in the beginning because this is when you make mistakes and learn. But knowing that I may only be able to make images there once, made me regret not being able to work with a dedicated team. This experience left a bitter taste in my mouth because I know I could have done more and better. Nonetheless, knowing the time we had, and the circumstances, I am quite happy with some of the shots we made outdoors and indoors that day. But now that I know the place, I would love to have a 2nd chance to create something much more creative and personal. 

With no particular order here are my favourite images:

I will be back in Geneva this year, will I be able to create in this amazing location once again? Stay tuned and find out. 

Huge thanks to the Musée Ariana for welcoming us that moring. Thank you Christine Pannatier, Mylène Stoya and the wonderful Nina Burri for trusting me for your images.
