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.

RSI ReteDue – La mia Svizzera riscoperta

An interview by Monica Bonetti on Laser (RSI Rete Due) on January 15th, 2019 about my new book Homo Helveticus.

La mia Svizzera riscoperta

Ginevrino di nascita e ticinese d’adozione Didier Ruef è un fotografo di reportage che nell’immagine cerca soprattutto la storia che vi sta dietro. Ne è l’ennesima conferma anche il suo ultimo libro “Homo Helveticus” uscito a dicembre presso l’editore bernese Till Schaap Edition. Didier Ruef vi ha raccolto 170 immagini in bianco e nero catturate nei quattro angoli della Svizzera nell’arco di trent’anni. Molti di quegli scatti sono stati realizzati durante feste tradizionali e quella che ne emerge è una Svizzera di cui risaltano tutte le diversità culturali e le contraddizioni ma anche la tensione verso il cambiamento e la modernità.Il libro diventa allora un altro dei tanti viaggi di Didier Ruef, questa volta alla ricerca della sua identità. Un viaggio e una ricerca che non sono privi di uno sguardo acutamente ironico e che il fotografo ci racconta in questo “Laser”.
