This content was published on December 10, 2007
Paul Senn, who was a photojournalist for the Zürcher Illustrierte, DU and more than 40 other Swiss and foreign magazines, is renowned as a major chronicler of everyday Swiss life in the war and crisis years between 1930 and 1950. But Senn was much more: he was a pioneer of colour photography and a socially-committed reporter in Europe and the United States.
