Wondering how the Swiss might spend their free time, Swiss photographers Andi Cortellini and Ursula Sprecher set out to encounter different hobbyist groups: a Star Wars fan club, vintage tram society, a pipe smoking club, poodle club, taxidermy society, the Dintefisch ("Squid") Diving Club, and oh-so-typical coffee-cream-lid trading club. No matter what they call themselves--interest group, association, club, clique, or league--the focus in these groups is always on voluntary commitment and the joy of pursuing a common cause or shared idea. The book presents sixty carefully staged portraits of these fascinating sub-culture groups.
