Mare Mater in Marseille
December 17, 2013
Don't miss Patrick Zachmann's Mare Mater, up in Marseille until January 28th.


"This is about a journey, a journey through memories and exiles. A journey that spins and weaves all the destinies I stumble upon. The fate of the emigrants leaving their country south of the Mediterranean Sea in order to evade joblesness, boredom, the lack of a future, and the fate of the mothers who let them go away or realize that they’re gone. “Today, I’m starting the travel in reverse. I leave in search of my long forgotten origins, of the missing images in my family photo album.”

“Mare, mater” – the sea, the mother.
-Patrick Zachmann
