Albert Steiner On valleys and people, 1908 (Hans-Jörg and Regula Ruch collection) Albert Steiner (1877-1965) was one of the most prominent Swiss photographers of the 20th century, yet he hardly received the attention he deserved. Inspired by painters such as Giovanni Segantini and Ferdinand Hodler, in the 1920s and 1930s Steiner took poetic images of landscapes in a unique light. The illustrated book "Albert Steiner – the photographic work" (Benteli Publishing Bern, 2005) recognises his considerable output. The exhibition "On valleys and people" is on display at the Galleria Gottardo in Lugano until April 21. swissinfo.ch Winter sun, 1930 or earlier (St. Moritz archive) swissinfo.ch Curling (Bruno Bischofberger, Meilen) swissinfo.ch Frozen lake (Swiss Photo Foundation) swissinfo.ch Spring snow (thawing) on Piz Nair above St Moritz (Swiss Photo Foundation, Winterthur) swissinfo.ch Pines covered in hoar frost in Maloja, Oberengadin, 1930 or earlier (St Moritz archive) swissinfo.ch Stormy atmosphere in Locarno (Hans-Jörg and Regula Ruch collection) swissinfo.ch Fungus on a tree trunk (St Moritz archive) swissinfo.ch Ticino countryside (St Moritz archive) swissinfo.ch Evening at Lake Sils, Oberengadin, 1930 or earlier (Hans-Jörg and Regula Ruch collection) swissinfo.ch The photographer with an artist's eye.
