Photothèque competition

As part of the Photothèque de la Ville de Luxembourg’s summer exhibition which paid tribute to Luxembourg photographer Jean Weyrich (1930-2004), visitors could take part in a competition for the chance to win a book from the Trésors de la Photothèque collection. Mrs. Miwa Chiba, Mr. Pierre Mergen, Mrs. Annette Stomp, Mr. Pierre Weiland and Mrs. Leblond received their prizes at the City Hall on 11 December, having correctly answered the following question: “Which newspaper did Jean Weyrich work for between 1972 and 1995?” (the correct answer being the Luxemburger Wort). Press photographer Jean Weyrich documented for the Luxemburger Wort different sociocultural aspects of Luxembourg life between 1961 and 1997, as well as numerous political
events. His archives feature more than 146,000 photos.
