From 11th April to 2nd June the Museum of Graphic Arts at the Palazzo Lanfranchi will play host to All Our Yesterdays, a great photographic and multimedia exhibition telling the stories of our grandfathers.
Eighteen international partners - museums, archives and agencies from all over Europe – joined forces in the EuropeanaPhotography project to digitize the best of their collections of early photographs. Now they are proud to present the finest, and often unseen, images of the past as witnessed by the pioneers of photography.
All Our Yesterdays is a great occasion to discover how citizens in Europe lived before Europe was born, in a moment of great change, while the future was approaching and a new medium – photography – was capturing everyday life within a picture.
With the camera as a time machine – framing the present, documenting the past and showing a glimpse of the future – men (and women!) have, throughout the history of photography, captured their world from its most beautiful angles as well as in its most dramatic days.
