WILLY SPILLER – STREET LIFE
New York / Los Angeles 1977-1985

VERNISSAGE 7 DECEMBER FROM 18H
Guest speaker: Tobia Bezzola

Exhibition until 27th January 2018

“Willy Spiller is one of Switzerland’s leading living photographers. Throughout and all around a man of the métiers, he shows that photography often mines deeper when it takes the surface seriously and that grandioses sometimes arise out of modesty. Spiller is a photographer of people and their stories, his pictures decipher the comédie humaine, he always finds something impressive in the inconspicuous, he sees the tragedy in the ridiculous, but also the humor in the depressing and the elegance in the tasteless. Unabashed, but always respectful, unsentimental, but soulful, his photographs guide us through our present, and without much excitement, without great gestures, they paint a sparkling image of human accomplishments, passions and ambitions. ”
