I Spy Something Beginning with “S”

The German photographer Andreas Herzau was born in 1962, the year that "The Germans", a collection of images by Swiss photographer René Burri, was published. Fifty years later, Herzau hit the road in search of "The Swiss".

These pictures provide a first glimpse of his ongoing project which looks not only at the biographical connection of the two photographers, but also the current issue of significant German emigration to Switzerland.


"At the first view it does'nt looks like Switzerland, but it is in Bern. These guys are made a rap-dance show in the front of the main-station." (Herzau)
