Urs Marty

Urs Marty
by Brida von Castelberg
Publisher's Description
This book encompasses the extraordinary oeuvre of Urs Marty. These largely unpublished photographs depict various strata of society and range from travel impressions and conceptually structured picture series, to his ubiquitous forays into red-light districts. Marty is never the distanced voyeur, rather he is an accomplice, if not a confidant of his subjects, who he depicts in close-up without artifice, as disenchanted yet dignified figures. Marty captures people and situations with the same cool precision as one might depict architecture or landscape, while never ignoring the emotional tone of the moment.
