Detailed Product Description

France, 2010. 139 pp, many full size b/w photos. Text in French.  New large format hardcover with dust jacket.

This is a heavy, large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail and International Mail.

Between 1857 and 2000, four photographers, from father to son, to invented and spread the art of mountain photography. They were called Tairraz. Joseph Tairraz, Tairraz George I, George II Tairraz, and Pierre Tairraz.

The story begins in Chamonix in 1857. Tairraz Joseph, son of the mayor, bought a camerica, a Geneva daguerreotype. Four years later, he took, before Auguste-Rosalie Bisson, official photographer of the emperor, the first photograph at the top of Mont Blanc. Soon the young man opened a studio in central Chamonix. He passed the baton to his son George. The dynasty has begun.
 
Tairraz, the Alps from father to son traces the history of this family and gives a great fluidity in seeing their images changing time by accompanying changes in Chamonix and mountaineering. For a century and a half, the unmatched photographers will Tairraz Mont Blanc and, over the generations will enjoy the film and will bond of friendship with other major traffickers in the Alps, such Frisian-Roche and Roger Gaston Rebuffat. The dynasty came to sleep in the death of Pierre in 2000. It gives us a certain way of looking at the mountain, to magnify the forms to express the emotions of those who venture.
