Miroirs d'eau, du Léman au Biwa - Lake Geneva Museum, Nyon, Switzerland, 2015

Updated: Jan 4

From November 19, 2015 to February 28, 2016

The Lake Geneva Museum presents a retrospective of the author's work on the lakes of Europe and Japan. Lake Biwa is the Japanese equivalent of Lake Geneva in terms of its surface area. Its geographical characteristics also share several similarities with the Franco-Swiss lake.

水鏡 レマン湖から琵琶湖へ

レマン湖美術館 スイス·ニヨン


ニヨンにあるレマン湖美術館(The Musée du Léman)にて、ヨーロッパと日本で撮影した数々の湖での写真、オリヴィエ·ロベール回顧展が開かれます。 琵琶湖はジュネーブ湖(レマン湖)とほぼ同面積であるだけでなく、山に囲まれているという地理的な条件においてもとても類似しています。 写真家としてレマン湖畔での撮影を長年に渡って行なってきました。そして現在は同様の一貫性のあるスタイルで他の多くの湖畔での撮影を続けています。




オープニングパーティー 2015年11月19日 - 写真家在館 生田流琴の師匠である林 智津子氏が日本の伝統音楽を演奏されます。
