Houdus, a family of photographers from the land of Fougères is the first volume of a series that we hope will be long and which will allow people to discover the wealth of the photographic collections of the Musée de Bretagne..
The last photographic studio collection entered into the museum's collections in 2010, it inaugurated publications that will enhance the value of the very important collections of photographs acquired by the museum since the second half of the 19th century..
The thousands of images preserved illustrate Brittany in all its diversity: men and landscapes intimately intertwined, photography plunges us into a region that is often overlooked and invites us to rediscover far from the clichés repeated a thousand times. The next volumes will aim not only to showcase the work of the photographers present in the collections, but also to bring thematic and transversal views on subjects that alone deserve to be revisited.s.
