Photo Elysée's publications provide continuity for the museum’s exhibitions and accompany all of its activities.

They also include original works such as the nominees’ and the winner’s books for the Prix Elysée. The diversity of titles and genres makes for a rich and varied catalogue that will soon be expanded to notably include a section on children’s books.

The co-publication of a large number of books from the museum’s catalogue, in conjunction with renowned editors from Switzerland and abroad, are a guarantee that these books, the photographers and their works will receive wide visibility in German-speaking Switzerland and around the world.


Our publications include various books and exhibition catalogs with different titles, published by Photo Elysée in collaboration with Swiss or foreign publishers, all connected to our programming.
