Orient-Express & Cie

The Orient Express Endowment Fund is showing  “Orient-Express & Cie,” co-produced with Les Rencontres d’Arles photography festival, on view through September 26.

The exhibition curated by Éva Gravayat and Arthur Mettetal is inspired by the Orient-Express, a cultural icon that has a number of stories and representations based upon real or fictional events. The photographs are from the archives of the former Compagnie internationale des wagons-lits, collected from former employees who had photographic prints, plans, maps, technical drawings, and advertising brochures that were relevant during their operation from 1883 to 1977. 

While most of the photographs are by anonymous photographers, others are attributed to names like Paul Nadar, Albert Chevojon and Sebah & Joailler
