Peter Gasser's vocation is photography and it has come late in life. He is a self-educated man, although he was already 30 years old when he started on his new path. For the last 7 years he has followed this path, taking endless photographs. He feels how the camera has changed his life - how he has begun seeing instead of looking. Gasser's pictures captivate through their polish and balance. Often they show a focus and brilliance which brings ever new detail to the observer: pictures of landscapes filled with beauty and others filled with ugliness, contact with people whose calmness concern us, impressions of the venetian kaleidoscope. With this volume, he is looking back on 15 years of productive artistic work as a photographer.
