The main themes of Tuggeners oeuvre were work in the factory, life in the countryside, and society events such as the magnificent New Years Eve balls at the Palace Hotel in St. Moritz. At the time of his death, Tuggener left behind an overwhelming and practically untouched trove of work, consisting of thousands of prints, over twenty silent films, and hundreds of drawings, watercolors and oil paintings. Based on this extremely rich and varied material, this book examines the visual and, through Tuggeners own texts, mental world of one of Europes most creative but hitherto undiscovered artists. This book fills a long overdue gap in the history of photography, and is a significant addition to 20th century photography studies.
