Fondation Cartier

Photography has recently played a prominent part in the exhibition programme of the Cartier Foundation. Along with details of how to visit the gallery and a timetable of its activities there is also an online gallery with projects made specifically for the website. These can be, like the site itself, difficult to navigate but do give a view of the diversity of work the Foundation exhibits. Both English and French versions of the site are available.

The garden lies behind glass and seems to be a part of the building. A car reflects in the glass so the picture was taken from the streetside. The glass protects the gardin from the street, like a sort of biotope. The open glass-steel construction strengthens the relation with the outside world.
