French banker Albert Kahn commissioned thirteen photographers and filmmakers (between 1909 and 1931) to fifty countries in an effort to understand and register practices and ways of life doomed to vanish. The resulting collection is known as Archives de la Planète and held at Musée Albert Kahn in Paris.

“Au coeur de la révolution industrielle de la fin du XIXe siècle et en plein essor du capitalisme, Albert Kahn, fils de marchands de bestiaux alsaciens crée sa propre banque et devient immensément riche. Profondément humaniste, il consacre sa vie à une oeuvre pacifiste protéiforme, ponctuée par la création de fondations, d’un jardin botanique, et d’une entreprise de couverture photographique et filmique d’un monde en pleine transformation: les Archives de la Planète.” | quotation src l’œil de la photographie
