Lucas Ziegler, born 1978, is a swiss-based photographer, who has recently finished the art school ZHdK in Zurich. During his studies he started to pursuit his own long-term projects. Also he has started to photograph for several indie magazines.
In his work, he focuses on faces but also objects, such as empty paperback-boxes in the city's streets and lumps of dirty snow underneath travel buses.
What has started as a childish game with every day objects or empty places, reveals a close look at habits and behaviours – a look into how we consume, love and move forward.
Faces, materials, interactions, that’s what catches Lucas Zieglers interest and lets him study topics and things over a long period of time, until he is satisfied with the examination of those objects, or gets bored.
