The Universal Exhibition of 1889

Expo universelle de 1889. Conférences de Fabrice Roy

Decidedly, it is a beautiful thing that a universal exhibition! A meeting, a gigantic fair, a family outing, a goal for a walk, the display of know-how, the rediscovered power of a nation proud of its inventors, its architects, its artists, its armies .

1889! It was 130 years ago and yet, are they so different from us, these French people that we see in the photographs, these families, these children who could be, for most of us, our great- grandparents?

With Fabrice Roy, let's go back the years, and dive into a series of incredible photos, plans and reconstructions in 3D in this universal exhibition which was, much more than that of  1900, the real entry of France and the world into modernity.
