The annual White Turf event, a tradition dating back to 1907, is no longer "merely" a horse-racing meeting. It stands for thundering horses hooves on spraying snow. Thrilling flat and trotting races, complete with betting offices. Courageous men and intrepid women on skis pulled along at high speed by unmounted horses at the only skijoring race in the world. A veritable feast for all the senses and a social highlight of the season..(at Sundays!)
Nicolas Lieber (Geneva, 1967) is a multitalented photographer, interested in music, fashion, sailing, short films, nude portraits and works of art alike. It's in this latter area that he began collaborating with the Musée Ariana some years ago. The institution is now giving carte blanche to the photographer, letting him fill the gallery showcases as he sees fit. Based on works in the collection, Nicolas Lieber creates a personal, dreamlike and intimate visual universe from the juxtaposition and collage of recent and historic photographs.
