Schweiz picture book
Graphic design, photography
Quite an assortment of images soon built, which provided the basis for this picture-book concept. Executed using international style, the books design stays true to the place it depicts.
The cover photograph is one of my favourites from the selection, but it's important to the narrative that I must admit it was purely accidental. If you look to the bottom edge of the photograph, a woman, in focus, can be partially seen. The image I had intended to photograph was the profile of the woman, but as the shutter released, a nearby child frightened a few dozen pigeons into flight, consequently obscuring the subject. Influential photojournalist Henri Cartier-Bresson coined the term, ‘the decisive moment’, a fitting statement for this image.
