My Grand-Pere’s World








For more than half a century, my grandfather has spent every spare moment exploring the world, and photographing his journey. 80 countries. 20,000 high-quality, old-fashioned slides. Now each day, thanks to our digital world (and with a little help from his grandson!) he can share those places and faces and memories of a life well-traveled.

The Royal Doorman Of Durban

South Africa 2018-01-16 10:05:30

Our first and only visit to South Africa was three years after the end of Apartheid. In Durban, we stayed in five-star style at The Royal, the city's oldest hotel, which first opened in 1845.



Ancient Dolphin Play

Italy 2018-01-11 14:02:42

My daughter Cécile has a troubling history of playing with archeological treasures. Though in her defense, at the time tourists were allowed to roam freely among the ruins of Ostia, the harbor city of ancient Rome.



Nobel Ballroom Shine

Sweden 2018-01-08 14:03:34

I took a step away (and back) from our guided tour, to better immortalize the size of Gyllene Salen, the Golden Hall in Stockholm's City Hall. This is where the Nobel Prize ball is hosted, under the glow of millions of glass and gold mosaic pieces.



The Way To The Oasis

Morocco 2018-01-04 13:46:36

Our various road trips through North Africa almost always included encounters with caravans of Berber nomads and their camels, making their way to bigger cities to resupply.



Steppe Into The Spotlight

Hungary 2017-12-22 12:09:48

In the puszta grassland valley of eastern Hungary, this csikós wrangler was just warming up before performing an incredible stunt show on galloping horses.



Psychedelic King Arthur

United Kingdom 2017-12-19 13:14:48

Glastonbury Abbey, in southern England, is held by some as King Arthur's final resting place — the mythical Avalon. When I photographed his fabled tomb, I was experimenting with a different brand of film that, as the decades went by, turned the green grass a strange tinge of blue and the red sign pink.



Under The Turkish Sun

Turkey 2017-12-15 14:05:11

To beat the gloominess of a rainy winter afternoon, I put aside my book and went through my sunny slides of Turkey. This one shows the road leading to the Library of Celsus in Ephesus.

A License Plate My Mother Could Love

Greece 2017-12-08 12:55:35

Over the years, I took pictures of license plates — they'd help me remember where I went without having to write things down in a notebook. But there was a different, more personal reason for photographing this motorbike plate on the Greek island of Corfu: "Ety," short for Etienne, was what my mother called me as a child.



Relaxing With The Indian Maidens

India 2017-12-05 15:37:38

The Courtyard of the Maidens is one of the most popular destinations in Udaipur, in the Indian state of Rajasthan. With its marble elephants and its lotus fountain, the garden was a perfect oasis of peace and quiet in the middle of the bustling city. For maidens and thirsty travel photographers alike.
