Peter Strebel: First snow in October, photography
Night time snow storm turned the mountain view into a white fairytale land. The sun shining through the clouds gave the snowy plants a fresh white shimmer. The sun made the snow smelt slowly so that while photographing the scene changed constantly. The snow stuck into the plants acrobatically and dropped slowly to the ground when it melted and created natural graphic elements. Japanese ink paintings have had a great influence on their photographic practice. The circle completed with the choice of the printing material. Every sheet of paper is handmade in Japan.
The photographer was born in Switzerland in 1950 and trained there as a mechanical engineer. For over a decade they had been an amateur photographer and on settling in Finland in 1983 they turned professional. The photographer studied artistic photography by attending many seminars and courses given by top photographers. Most of all they have been influenced by Eikoh Hosoe (Japan), Mario Cresci (Italy) and André Gelpke and Floris M. Neusüss (Germany). In the course of their career they have done many sets of photographs on specific themes that have been exhibited in various European countries.
