PDN Photo of the Day

A Modern Day Look at Switzerland

Sublime summits, delightful lakes, peaceful valleys–the iconic images of the Swiss landscape were shaped by photography at a very early stage. But what has become of that landscape? The deconstruction of former photographic myths has given rise to new contemporary views of Switzerland. In its current exhibition “Adieu la Suisse!,” which runs through August 25, 2013, the Fotostiftung Schweiz in Zurich presents a new, topical Swiss panorama made up of selected works by contemporary Swiss photographers. The exhibit includes photographs by Jean-Luc Cramatte, Nicolas Faure, Yann Gross, Andri Pol, Christian Schwager, Jules Spinatsch, Martin Stollenwerk, a video work by Erich Busslinger and historical photographs from the collection of the Fotostiftung Schweiz. “Adieu la Suisse!” was organized in collaboration with the Pavillon Populaire / Ville de Montpellier. –Courtesy Fotostiftung Schweiz
