meanwhile, in zurich, an exhibition showcases hundreds of beautiful swiss photobooks dating from 1927 to the present day. this enormous  collection not only highlights the natural affinity between the swiss  and design, but also proves that collecting images is something that has  been going on a lot longer than our current click-and-drag culture  suggests. the show itself brings intelligent contextualisation and  illuminating insider-knowledge to the books, some of which have been  lost for many years and are now presented to a wide-eyed and grateful  audience. found via the ever-good manystuff.

About:

UNTITLED is a thematic blog of obsessions (or more professionally said, investigations) into a particular topic, either visual, textual or aural. topics will vary in time but only after thorough research and long-term commitment. (investigation is a serious business, i would never waste my and your time with superficial info. almost.) we kick off with mountains. feel free to share this journey; it’s a mix bag of fun, thoughts and cross-disciplinary communication. most of the material is appropriated from press, broadcast or online sources, some is mine. if I have the source, I’ll tell you, or link. if not, either because i kept the cut-out or clip for too many years, forgot to copy the author’s name, or simply couldn’t find out, i'll leave it blank. if it’s yours, do drop me a line. nothing is immortal anyway. enjoy, alfredo :)
