Il Ticino e i suoi fotografi: Fotografie dal 1858 ad oggi = Das Tessin und seine photographen : photographien von 1858 bis heute (Schweizer Photographie) (Italian Edition)
by Alberto Nessi
Publisher's Description
Part of a series on the history of photography in Switzerland, this is a visual feast of photographs taken by Swiss photographers from 1858 to the present. The particular subject of this book is the evolution of photograpy in the Italian-speaking canton known as Ticino or Tessin. The color of early monochromatic photographic processes is simulated using full color and duotone reproductions. The subjects run the gamut from formal portraits and landscapes to journalistic and documentary photographs. In addition to the beautifully printed photographs there is an introductory text--in both Italian and German--by Alberto Nessi and an additional essay by Hugo Loetscher and biographies of the photographers whose work appears in the book.
