“Anything becomes interesting if you look at it long enough.”
Gustave Flaubert, Letters.
These words, composed concurrent to the birth of photography – an artistic technique that came toembody the art of seizing the moment – were rstexpressed by Flaubert in a letter to the poet, Alfred Le Poittevin, in 1845. Today, a single moment is
all it takes to see how these words could be said to epitomize the approach of Swiss photographer, Simon Schwyzer, born in Zurich on July 10, 1986.
A graduate of the London College of Communication in Photography, Schwyzer has seen his work published in The New York Times, Paris- Match, Beaux-Arts Magazine, L’Of ciel Art...
He also worked collaboratively with AlexandraGordienko on the rst issues of the Marfa Journal,which had previously published his photographsfrom three trips to Mongolia alongside an article by Chinese writer, Mian Mian.
