Switzerland has long had world-class photographers in Robert Frank, Werner Bischof, and Rene Burri. Photosuisse takes a look at the next generation, the internationally renowned Thomas Flechtner, Annelies Strba, Balthasar Burkhard, Beat Streuli, Olaf Breuning, Luc Chessex, Georg Gerster, Urs Luthi, Jean Mohr, and others, bringing together young meteors as well as established photographers who have triggered developments over the past 30 years. Photosuisse acts as a sort of ‘musee imaginaire’ of contemporary Swiss photography and puts forth a nation of 27 unique viewpoints between the covers of a book. In addition to generous spreads of images, each artist is represented by film portraits produced by Swiss Television and collected in two DVDs.
