The artist will be present and signing his book.


With the publication of the Catalogue Raisonné by the Swiss photographer René Groebli (born 1927), the Swiss photo book publisher Sturm & Drang presents in 2019 – after various monothematic publications – an overview of Groebli’s photographic oeuvre, selected by Groebli himself. From the early works like his journey on a steam locomotive from Paris to Basel in 1949 to his later, innovative colour photographs or nudes taken in 2001/2002, the 250-page illustrated book shows 1200 photographs, including many previously unpublished images.
This detailed overview illustrates for the first time in one large volume the unbridled artistic creativity and the insatiable will of the photographer to experiment.
With an essay written by Hans-Michael Koetzle and a compendium on the working methods as well as an overview of previous publications and exhibitions.
