This photography book is the first-ever presentation
of René Groebli’s pictures spanning a good
half-century – although with no claim to completeness.
Mirjam Cavegn personally selected the pictures,
introducing us to the wide spectrum of Groebli’s
photography. She produced this publication with
her gallery as a tribute to an artist whom she has
represented for many years, building friendship
with him over the years and devoting several
exhibitions to his work.
René Groebli already scaled the Olympus of photographic history with his early work: Rail Magic (1949) and The Eye of Love (1952), and yet his lifework encompasses so very much more. He has spent over six decades in single-minded, experimental pursuit of images that both jog visual assumptions and chart new territory – whether in the four walls of his studio, in his dark room or in his Alsatian country house, whether on the road in London or Paris, Ireland or Peru.
