Swiss Photobooks from 1927 to the Present offers a new overview of the history of Swiss photography. The focus is on seventy selected photobooks, from classics to long-forgotten publications or brilliant works by contemporary photographic artists. The individual books are presented with lavish series of illustrations and texts by highly-esteemed authors, while five longer essays position them in their respective eras. An extensive bibliography completes this volume.
Swiss Photobooks from 1927 to the Present is a chronologically organized reference work that traces photography’s transition from a document to a subjective or artistic means of expression. It also pays homage to the photobook, which has repeatedly shown itself to be an ideal medium for the presentation of photographic work.
Swiss Photobooks from 1927 to the Present was published in parallel to an exhibition at the Fotostiftung Schweiz in Winterthur.
