Elena

Ongoing Independent

Since 2016 I have regularly photographed Elena, my niece who lives in Valais, Switzerland - where I also grew up. Taken over the years, the series now shows how a "little" girl grew up to become a confident woman. This is a selection of recent years and a video shot in 2021.

Crowdfunding Campaign

In collaboration with the outstanding design studio Deutsche + Japaner, an inauguration campaign discovers the female body in detail, bringing the female to the fore.

Bodies in Motion

2019 Independent

A series of different stagings, which focus on the spontaneous during the encounter between photographer and model. The image sequences of photography and moving image constitute a more holistic portrait.

Post Intimacies

2020 Independent

As a spontaneous reaction to the isolation experienced during lockdown in spring 2020, the Post Intimacies series focuses on depicting youth. Models were photographed via zoom using a variety of artificial backgrounds as an escape from the boredom caused by isolation at home.

Campaign

A campaign, photo and video, produced on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Zalando in Switzerland.

LOYALTY

2021 Adam Linder

Working closely with Adam Linder, I began developing a sequence of photographs that translate the virtuosity, theatricality, and abstract nature of his new ballet LOYALTY into a photographic language that is close to the dancers.

Lookbook

2021 Paulina Muenzing

Paulina Muenzing is a fashion designer based in Berlin. On the occasion of her master's degree show at UDK Berlin, I photographed her collection SIMULACRUM, which is inspired by the overpopulation of digital images that we manipulate through copying and sharing. The collection explores how the hyperlinked network structure invades our identities and questions our emotional relationship to the internet.

Ensemble

2020–2021 Schauspielhaus Zürich

In collaboration with the art director Laurenz Brunner and the editor Mathis Neuhaus, various portraits of the ensemble of the Schauspielhaus Zürich have been created over the last 2 years. Each of the series emphasizes the actors themselves; their individual expressions and their respective roles. The result is a complex and diverse visual language that deals with closeness, intimacy, presence and absence.

Photographer Diana Pfammatter has an eye for portraits that disarm. Whether she is shooting big-name artists or intimate pictures with good friends, she creates scenes that feel surprisingly spontaneous. The images on her website reveal that she has the ability to level with each of her subjects before the camera until the shared smiles and shyness of humanity is teased out and laid bare. This openness extends to close-cropped details of the body, where the folds and creases of skin become a new form of embodied abstraction. (Louise Benson, deputy editor, Elephant Magazine)
