Hans Steiner has been attracting increasing interest in recent years, which has led to his well-deserved rediscovery. In the 1930s, he had his first success with reports on the small and large dramas of everyday life and society – such as the first ascent of the Eiger North Face in 1937.
He also made a name for himself in the field of portraiture. He quickly proved to be a privileged witness, both unconventional and resolutely optimistic, of a society that was evolving towards consumerism. He proposes a different vision of Switzerland, more urban, in which women, sports, leisure and advertising acquire a new visibility.
The publication has the double ambition of showing Steiner’s most representative and appealing images and of offering a contemporary look at a historical subject.
