What is it about exile that inspires photography? This talk explores the earliest known exile photography, created in the studio formed by Victor Hugo's family and friends in their exile on the Channel Island of Jersey between 1852 and 1855. In these years, the Hugo group turned exile into a photographic project, and in doing so, they transformed the history of photography.
