photo14 is the largest and most popular exhibit of Swiss photography. In the formerly industrial halls of Maag, some 125 Swiss photographers are showcasing their portfolios from 2013.
Zurich Tourism Key Visuals
Highlights of photo14 include a series of new key visuals for Zurich Tourism: In an attempt to capture Zurich's residents in the framework of their city, three Swiss photographers have created a total of 29 new identities.
Before the global launch in their marketing campaigns, Zurich Tourism is displaying these photographs at photo14. The photographers are Fabian Scheffold, Noë Flum and Fabian Frinzel.

The Big Picture
Nik Wallimann is the artist behind The Big Picture, a global multimedia collaboration focusing on one subject: Mt. Stanserhorn. In more than 600'000 individual photographs, this magnificent Swiss mountain was portrayed during all seasons. As a next step, bundles of several thousand photographs were given to artists around the world. As their animated interpretations of these photographs are pouring in, Mr. Wallimann is getting ready for the final step: A single multimedia production created by everyone.
"Swiss Moments" Installation
Another highlight is entitled "Schweizer Momente" ("Swiss Moments"). Projected onto 24 gigantic screens, one moment in Switzerland's history was captured thousands of times over: Friday, September 13, 2013.
On this day, people in Switzerland were asked to snap a picture and submit it to the project. No less than 24'404 photographs were received, which were now made into an art installation.
