Wikipedia, French version, March 12, 2020 (Frédéric Boissonnas; born 18 June 1858, Geneva; died 17 October, 1946, Geneva, age 88; Swiss photographer, from a family of Geneva artists / photographers; his father Henri-Antoine Boissonnas (1833-1889) founded their photography studio in 1864; between 1907 and 1919 Frédéric made several trips to Greece, including that of 1913 with Daniel Baud-Bovy with whom he made the first known ascent of Mount Olympus; Frédéric directed the family studio from 1887 to 1920; in 1919 the publishing house Boissonnas SA was founded, and the same year he left for Greece accompanied by his son Edmond-Édouard Boissonnas; two of his sons succeeded him in turn in directing the studio; his seventh son Paul (1902-1983) ended up directing it until 1969, at which point he turned it over to his son-in-law, Gad Borel (1942- ); in 2011 the Ville de Genève requested a municipal credit for acquisition of the Boissonnas photographic archive, which was deposited at the Bibliothèque de Genève, Centre d'iconographie)
