Swissinfo – Who is ‘Homo Helveticus?’

On the web site of Swissinfo from the 2nd of February 2019, you can look at a selection of pictures from my book Homo Helveticus.

Didier Ruef has been documenting life in Switzerland for more than 30 years. His book contains a carefully compiled selection of photos of Switzerland and the people who call it home. The Swiss historian Thomas Maissen writes in the foreword to the book: “There is nothing that does not exist in Switzerland.” Perhaps, someone should add to this: and, nothing that the photographer has not captured by his camera in the last 30 years.
