LIGHTMOTIF - THE STORY OF A PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY
LIGHTMOTIF is a family-run company founded in 1978 by Christophe and Viviane Blatt, a couple with a passion for photography.
It all began in the district of St-Jean in Geneva with the renovation of an old dairy to create a clean space dedicated to photography, and successively used as a photographic studio, a picture agency representing 17 Swiss photographers and a photo gallery.

We then create Lightmotif-Editions for publishing photographs as greeting cards and postcards, sold in retail stores in Switzerland.
After the acquisition of the publishing house, "Editions Coloris Jaeger" founded in 1912, and the "Editions Clair-Obscur" of Albert Philippon, we move to larger premises in the industrial area La Pallanterie, Vésenaz.
For several years the products of Lightmotif are offered through an online store; and now professional resellers are able to place there orders in Lightmotif-pro Shop.
