Hans Feurer has been a mainstay of fashion photography since the late 1960s, but despite his influence, this legendary photographer has had no books dedicated to his work--until now. Feurer’s career has certainly been an illustrious, star-studded and influential one, and the models who were his subjects, the designers he profiled and the leading publications which featured his work comprise a roll call of the highest echelons of the fashion and magazine worlds. Feurer has shot for Vogue, Nova, Elle and many more leading publications. One of his most famous advertising campaigns was for Kenzo in 1983, which immortalized Iman and secured her status as an iconic supermodel of the period. Before embarking on a career in photography, Feurer worked as a graphic designer and art director. Traces of these previous careers are detectable throughout his work, evidenced by his careful compositions and precise styling. Emmanuelle Alt, the editor of French Vogue, has revived Feurer’s photographic career, and he is now widely referenced by top photographers such as Inez & Vinoodh. Designed by Fabien Baron, and lavishly illustrated with 175 photographs, this overview is a must-have for collectors of fashion photography books. It presents the photographer’s most iconic images from throughout the years, in a fascinating mélange of fashion styles and trends.Hans Feurer was born in Switzerland in 1939. After studying art in Switzerland, he worked as a graphic designer, illustrator and artistic director in London. In 1966, he traveled to Africa, during which trip he decided to become a photographer. He returned to London and began to compile a portfolio.

No Core is the first monograph on the increasingly celebrated oeuvre of Berlin-based artist Pamela Rosenkranz (born 1979). From works using Ralph Lauren-branded latex paint and soft drinks to plastic water bottles filled with urine-hued liquids, Rosenkranz takes aim at the empty centers of our contemporary culture as a whole.

Separately renowned in their respective mediums of film and painting, Harmony Korine and Rita Ackermann meet in their mutual affection for unorthodox, mischievous beauty, and more specifically in the creation of psychologically jarring figures amplified through fragmented narratives. Shadowfux documents the artists' first collaboration. Taking Korine's recent film Trash Humpers (2009) as its point of departure, it features large-scale works in which Ackermann and Korine have collaged, painted and drawn over stills of the film's beguiling young bodies with old faces. Generated through a call-and-response method, Shadowfux illustrates the importance of cutting to both artists' works. Additionally, it presents short texts by Korine, as well as previously unpublished deleted scenes from Trash Humpers. Accompanying the artists' works are short illustrative texts by exhibition curator Gianni Jetzer, curators Richard Flood and Piper Marshall, and critics Antoine Catala and Cameron Shaw.

Published by Swiss Institute/Presentation House Gallery/Museum Gegenwartskunst/Bywater Bros. Introduction by Gianni Jetzer.
Commencing his career in the 1950s as a self-taught photographer working primarily for the gay underground Zurich club and magazine Der Kreis, Karlheinz Weinberger (1921–2006) took candid shots of lovers, friends and strangers on the street with an overt erotic investment in his subjects. He soon developed a fixation with the working-class youth culture known as the “Halbstark” (or “half strong”). Its members demonstrated their anti-establishment stance with embellished outfits of denim and leather, in an exaggerated and homemade version of the popularized American bad-boy style of the time. In his stark, posed photographs of these young rebels, Weinberger focuses on individual figures, exploring both a personal erotic obsession and the cultural symbolism of blue jeans, whose scarcity in post war Switzerland implied not just a fashion statement but a badge of pride. This publication reproduces a rare portfolio of these works that Weinberger designed himself in the mid-1950s.

Published by Swiss Institute. Introduction by Gianni Jetzer, Markus Landert. Text by Beatrix Ruf, Dorothee Messmer.
Since 2003, American artist Richard Phillips (born 1964) has made numerous appropriations of paintings by the Swiss artist Adolf Dietrich (1877-1957). Phillips shares with Dietrich a fondness for such subjects as animals, people and landscapes, stylized into an extreme degree of artifice. Phillips' appropriations and quotations of Dietrich's motifs orient his own aims firmly within the logic of art history (specifically the modernist canon), and Dietrich, known in his day as "the German Rousseau," and winning acclaim under the constrained terms of "naïve," also proves to be a sophisticated modernist artist. In this volume, published to accompany an exhibition at the Swiss Institute in New York, Phillips' works are presented alongside Dietrich's, accompanied by an essay on Dietrich by Phillips, a conversation between Beatrix Ruf and Phillips, a text by Dietrich scholar Dorothee Mesmer and an introduction by Gianni Jetzer and Markus Landert.

Published by JRP|Ringier. Text by Marc-Olivier Wahler, Jacqueline Burckhardt, Giovanni Carmine, Philip Ursprung, Diedrich Diederichsen, Gianni Jetzer, Rein Wolfs.
This publication presents an overview of the work of the Swiss artist duo Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann (L/B), who have been collaborating since 1993 and have regularly exhibited in biennials, museums and art venues around the world. Their work can be described as riding on the edge of art, architecture and design. Designed by the Zurich-based design firm Norm, this volume divides L/B's work into seven thematic groups by chapter: Mobile (containing movable objects, among them the one-room hotel "Everland"), Comfort (inflatable objects), Perfect (modular objects), Surface (sharp-edged paintings), Flat (wall paintings), Space (stage objects) and Field (interventions in the real world). Each thematic chapter is introduced by a noted writer; they include, in order, Marc-Olivier Wahler, Philip Ursprung, Giovanni Carmine, Jacqueline Burckhardt, Diedrich Diederichsen, Gianni Jetzer and Rein Wolfs.

Swiss artist Daniele Buetti is notorious for his defaced photographs of supermodels, which feature scars, tattoos and disenchanted fragments of text. Buetti has been questioning the socially determined constructs of beauty and the commodification of sexuality and glamour since the 1980s. His altered photographs--large-scale C-prints on aluminum or light-boxes--have messages like “How much is my body worth?” and “What shall I hope for?” scrawled across them in electric colors. Buetti also often energetically scratches out or draws over portions of the image in a manner that recalls the destructive doodling of a truculent adolescent. Maybe You Can Be One of Us focuses on Buetti’s recent drawings, videos, sculptures and installations. In these newer pieces, the fashion models give way to enigmatic illustrative symbols, such as two disembodied hands conjuring a puff of smoke. This publication accompanies an exhibition of new work at the Swiss Institute for Contemporary Art in New York.
Published by JRP|Ringier. Text by Gianni Jetzer, Ali Subotnick, Kate Bush.
In a New York Times review, Roberta Smith wrote that Shirana Shahbazi “treats her photographs like words that can be used in different sentences or translated into entirely different languages.” Shahbazi--who won the London Citibank Prize in 2002 and participated in the 2005 Venice Biennale--was born in Tehran in 1974, moved to Germany as a child and is currently based in Zurich. Her work reflects the references she has absorbed from both Iranian and European cultures. Trained as a photographer, Shahbazi shoots eclectically--portraits, still lifes, landscapes. These photographs are then often used as source material for paintings, billboards and traditional Iranian carpets. By altering the scale of the photographs, transposing the imagery into a new medium and blending cultures, she subverts viewers' expectations about the relationship between an artist's identity and her work. Lavishly illustrated, this monograph includes essays by Kate Bush, Ali Subotnick and Gianni Jetzer.
Published by Artimo. Essay by Patricia Ellis. Intro by Gianni Jetzer and Stijn Huijts.
Saskia Olde Wolbers has a taste for stories in which the characters become victims of their own imaginations, unable to tell dream from reality. In her videos, detached voice-overs recount the unlikely dramas of her protagonists; abstract visuals look like digital dreamscapes but are in fact meticulously built miniature film sets.

Published by Hatje Cantz. Essays by Christopher Doswald, Gianni Jetzer, Markus Stegmann, Dorothea Strauss, Philip Vergne.
Films, television, advertising, video clips, and computer games--all are fair game and useful material for Swiss artist Olaf Breuning. In his photographs, videos, and installations, Breuning engages with the reality of the vast array of media that surround us incessantly, day in and day out, appropriating narratives, images, and characters to create unforgettable and eerily familiar hybrids. Through unlikely medleys that juxtapose such disparate elements as the accoutrements of occultism, new-age fads, and vampire films, mixing together disgust, sweetness, kitsch, horror, levity, and gravity, Breuning shows that nothing is too sacred or profane to warrant inclusion in one of his playful, weirdly subtle compositions.
