Swiss Mountain Photography Then and Now

Lecturer: Danaé Panchaud

Time:21:00-22:20,13th March,2021


The introduction:

If you ever take the train from Geneva, around the lake and towards the Alps, you may notice a curious phenomenon: most of the commuters, who take this train hundreds of times every year, sit on the right-hand side of the train. As the train reaches the lake, you will understand why: it is the side with the view of the lake and the mountains. And as any commuter will tell you, the landscape is never twice the same, and you cannot get tired of it.

Swiss people are very passionate about the landscapes of their country and feel privileged to live in such a setting. It has not always been the case. For centuries, the mountains were considered a hostile territory: threatening and unpredictable, hardly navigable and mostly infertile. But by the time photography was invented, in 1839, the perception of the Alpine environment had shifted. In no small part due to the influence of wealthy British tourists, the mountains were inspiring reverential awe as well as an appetite for conquest, alongside scientific curiosity – all of which translated into a growing photographic body that never stopped expanding. Nowadays, the mountain remains an important motif for Swiss photographers, who keep on documenting this evolving territory and exploring its symbolic and poetic potential.
