Until 31 December 2022

Although photography and cinema became the most important art forms at the beginning of the 20th century, Albert Kahn understood very early on the revolution that these arts would bring. In 1908-1909, he undertook a voyage around the world and launched the project of visual documentation of the five continents. These Archives of the Planet are exhibited today at the Gardens, showing 4000 stereoscopic plates and 2000 metres of film. Thanks in particular to Albert Dutertre, whom Albert Kahn recruited to document the journey.
