Pictures of Switzerland normally include its idyllic countryside, lakes and buildings. However, an exhibition at the Swiss Foundation for Photography in Winterthur is showing works by seven photographers that show a different and topical view of the country.

The show, entitled Adieu la Suisse and running until August 25, 2013, features photographs by Jean-Luc Cramatte, Nicolas Faure, Yann Gross, Andri Pol, Christian Schwager, Jules Spinatsch and Martin Stollenwerk.
