Nuit de la Photo
Rue du Nord 77, 2300 La Chaux-de-Fonds, SWITZERLAND

Five hundred kilometers further north, at 1000 meters high in the french-speaking area of Switzerland, we are in La Chaux-de-Fonds. This is an industrial city of equivalent size, with a historical past somewhat shorter and less glamorous, but nevertheless a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its industrial town planning related to watchmaking.

We organised the first Night of photography in January 2012 at the same time as the 70th Biennial of Contemporary Art by the Friends of the Museum of Fine Arts, aiming to contribute to the spreading of contemporary photography. In a certain way Lucien Clergue put the event under his umbrella as he decided to come to hold the opening conference for this first edition.
