Il libro illustrato presenta icone famose e trouvaille sconosciute della collezione della Fotostiftung Schweiz. A 50 anni dalla sua nascita, la Fondazione vi invita a riscoprire il ricco linguaggio della fotografia e a vedere il mondo con occhi diversi. I testi di accompagnamento, scritti dal team di Fotostiftung e pubblicati in una popolare rubrica di immagini della Neue Zürcher Zeitung, chiedono il significato delle fotografie che rimangono nella memoria.

Questa pubblicazione viene pubblicata in occasione del 50° anniversario della Fotostiftung Schweiz.

A doomed painter on his last walk, a barefoot girl in front of a school blackboard, a charismatic politician as an advocate for the simple life: 99 Photographs presents images that touch, seduce or confuse. Since 1971 the Fotostiftung Schweiz has been collecting archives of photographers and outstanding works of photographic history. Now its 50th anniversary gives rise to a curated look at this collection – an invitation to discover the rich language of photography and to see the world through different eyes.

Well-known icons stand next to unknown trouvailles, pioneers of color photography next to Netcam photographers. The short accompanying texts point to a reality that lies behind the facts and beneath the surface. Ninety-nine times, editor Peter Pfrunder stops time to look inward and outward at once – until the invisible emerges in the visible and images turn out to be a wondrous mixture of facts and fantasies.
