BLICK Was There: 60 Years of Tabloid Photography

Edited with text by Peter Wälty.

BLICK Was There: 60 Years of Tabloid Photography

Embracing the motto “You can do anything but bore people,” the legendary Swiss tabloid BLICK first appeared on newsstands on October 14, 1959. Celebrating its 60th anniversary, this book collects the strongest, most original and emotional photos from the hundreds of thousands in its archives, and presents them to the wider international public for the first time.

Photography has always had a special place in BLICK; a newspaper with so many images (black-and-white until the mid-1980s) simply had not existed before. From the very beginning, BLICK was close to the action and spoke to its readers at eye level—quite unlike other newspapers of the time. Born in two small flats on the edges of Zurich’s banking district, BLICK has since flourished and polarized the public throughout its history: it has been publically burned, one of its journalists was arrested at gunpoint and the Swiss Federal Council even boycotted it.
