Between 1857 and 2000, four photographers will, from father to son, invent and pass on the art of mountain photography. They are called Tairraz. Joseph Tairraz, Georges Tairraz, Georges Tairraz and Pierre Tairraz. The story begins in Chamonix in 1857. Joseph Tairraz, son of the syndic (mayor), buys a daguerreotype device in Geneva. Four years later, he made, before Auguste-Rosalie Bisson, the first photograph at the top of Mont-Blanc. Very quickly, the young man opened a studio in the center of Chamonix. He will pass the baton to his son Georges. The dynasty is launched. Tairraz, the Alps from father to son retraces the history of this family and shows in a beautiful chronological fluidity their images which evolve by accompanying the transformations of Chamonix and mountaineering. he dynasty went dormant when Pierre died in 2000. It left us with a certain way of looking at the mountain, of magnifying its forms to express the emotions of those who venture there.
