Catherine and André Hug Gallery chose photography to explore the mode of expression of this medium, through the classic documentary style photographers or fictional form that allows the medium, but especially for his questioning of reality , its narrative potential or exploration of the dream that inhabits man.

The gallery is developing photographic program, comparing more historical series to the most contemporary expressions. Discoveries and rediscoveries allow to question time and reality, two foundations of photography.
