Antoine Wagner, Richard Wagner’s great-great-grandson, goes on the trail of his world-famous ancestor in Switzerland.
The photographs taken by Antoine Wagner afford us a glimpse of how the Swiss Alps particularly, a place where the composer indulged his passion for rambling during his two stays in the region, exerted a considerable effect on his operatic works.
This young photographer and filmmaker also sees nature as a powerful source of inspiration. In it, he sees a common denominator for values and dreams that we all share and that are necessary for all creative work.
In this jubilee year with its outstanding celebrations, these new photographs by Wagner’s descendent honour his forebear in a very special way.
