Une histoire d’images
Donation Antoine de Galbert au musée de Grenoble


Through the works of 95 photographers, this book directly confronts significant recent historical events and highlights the pivotal role played by photography in the shaping of our perceptions.
Each piece is analysed with a description that contextualises the photographers’ work and the stories behind the scenes they present. From civil rights struggles to geopolitical upheavals, from technological advances to major cultural movements, up until the everyday lives—sometimes marked by violence, other times by poetry—of anonymous individuals, each photograph poignantly, and sometimes tragically, unveils the destiny of humanity as it grapples with the inexorable, often elusive and crushing march of History.
This catalogue is published on the occasion of the exhibition featuring Antoine de Galbert’s donation to the Musée de Grenoble.
