For 25 years - from 1932 to 1957 - he studied, photographed and cataloged contemporary architecture. The result was six volumes, consisting mostly of illustrations (over 2000). They became one of the main sources for the history of modernism.
Le Corbusier, Terragny, Charoun, Neutra and Barragán are just a few of the 650 architects from around the world whose buildings have been photographed by Sartoris and 410 other photographers.
180 works by 60 different authors from this collection form the exhibition at the Vitre Museum, organized in collaboration with the Archives of Modern Building in Lausanne. This is where the 8,000 unique photographs collected by this Italian-Swiss researcher are kept.
The theme of the exhibition is the dialogue between the image and the architectural project, the definition of the boundaries of the artist's independence and experimentation, carried out by respect and attention to the object - the building.
