Sammlung Francis Schmutz,
Fotograf & Architekt, 1939-2023

Francis Schmutz published a part of his 30 years of photographic work on this website until shortly before his death. The work is divided into a variety of categories and shows in particular snapshots of what Francis meant: subjects and moments that look at him (the photographer). In the post-processing in his studio, a strict formal and urbanistically playful aesthetic takes hold, which can also be found in some of his architectural projects. The distinctive walks, especially through the Seeland to Neuchâtel, the boat trips, the shoes, monuments and typical Swiss landscapes are mixed with trips to Italy, Greece, Thailand and cities such as Barcelona. Abstract moments in motion and musical compositions, word games in the picture, diptychs, triptychs, it is as if he wanted to reconstruct the world in his small studio in Niederwangen near Bern, where he had last conceived the book ” Francis Schmutz, Fotografien ” before he died in Bern on June 18, 2023.
