Born in Geneva in 1925, Jean Mohr graduated in economics and worked as a delegate for the International Committee of the Red Cross in the Middle East. After studying painting in Paris he took up photography in 1952. For the next 38 years, he devoted his time to working with many international humanitarian organisations and his photographs were published regularly. 1967 saw the publication of “A Fortunate Man”, the first in an ongoing collaboration with the writer John Berger. Mohr has also collaborated with Edward Said with ‘After the Last Sky – Palestinian Lives’ which appeared in 1988. A major retrospective exhibition of Mohr’s work in Israel and Palestine “Side by Side or Face to Face” was mounted in 2003 and travelled extensively. He lives in Geneva with his wife, Simone Turrettini. .galleryofphotography
