photoSCHWEIZ20

Once the holiday dust has settled and the new year has kicked off, we are always glad to find inspiration at photoSCHWEIZ.

You may remember the previous editions of Switzerland's largest photography exhibit, such as photo19. In 2020, the organizers have rebranded the exhibit to simply photoSCHWEIZ.

More than 300 photographers will be displaying their best works, whereby 200 photographs will be part of the regular exhibit. The remaining pieces will be spread among 18 special exhibitions covering everything from documentary to nature photography.

One such exhibit is entitled "Doomed Paradise", a long term documentation of the rain forests of Borneo. Photographer Tomas Wüthrich has traveled there multiple times in order to visit with local residents who are fighting deforestation. I am particularly interested in this show because the recent feature film, Paradise War, about Bruno Manser, has brought the Penan people back into popular consciousness.

photoSCHWEIZ workshops

Those who want to further their photography skills or are considering a career as a photographer should look into the 120 workshops. Topics range from travel photography to aerial photography (held in English).

photoSCHWEIZ is open daily from 11 AM to 8 PM and tickets are available online.
