In 1958, Zürich photographer Karlheinz Weinberger first captured the likeness of Halbstarke (rebel) Jimmy Oechslin, an artistic moment which marks the genesis of this collection of images focused on young Swiss teenagers. That particular photographic encounter triggered Weinberger’s life-long fascination with outsiders and nonconformists in the otherwise staid environment of Switzerland. The photographs presented in this first of several volumes about his work offer a rare glimpse into a bygone world that seems almost cute and quaint from a contemporary perspective, but make no mistake: just dressing in jeans, sporting a beehive hairdo and hanging chains around one’s neck was a statement as loud as blasting music by Buddy Holly or Jerry Lee Lewis on a normally quiet Swiss Sunday afternoon in that era.

Weinberger’s work was discovered by the art scene shortly before his death in 2006, and his artistic trove revealed tens of thousands of prints, slides and negatives that have been collected, archived, numbered and indexed over the course of the last decade. Many neverbefore seen images were discovered during this process, and thus the idea to publish thematic volumes with a single theme was inspired with a layout that takes its cue from the "Illustrierten" of the era, the glossy entertainment magazines with large photo spreads. With Halbstarke as Volume #1, Sturm & Drang publishers will follow with more releases that cover topics such as sports, tattoos and insignias, his travels to the South of Italy, and the extensive work he did with biker gangs and rockers in the 1970s and 80s. All the first editions of these volumes will be limited to 1200 copies. 

Current and upcoming Karlheinz Weinberger exhibitions: 31. May - 27. August 2017, PhotoEspaña Madrid | 3. July - 24. September 2017, Rencontres d’Arles  | 5. October - 31. December 2017, Mérignac Photographic Festival | 2018, Kornhaus Bern

PETER HAUSER hello I am not from here

Celebrating the release of Weinberger Volume 1.

Early July saw the release of our first of five volumes of works by Swiss photographer Karlheinz Weinberger under the title HALBSTARKE. We launched the book/magazine hybrid during the opening of the incredible Weinberger exhibition at the rencontres d'Arles where one of the portraits by KHW is the official image of the 2017 campaign. 2017 is truly the year of Karlheinz Weinberger and we are proud to be a part of it.

Upcoming Releases Spring 2017

Sturm & Drang is happy to announce the upcoming releases for our Spring 2017 catalog.  A reissue of René Groebli's "Auge der Liebe" will be great news to all the fans who missed our release of the book in 2014. We are also working on a extended version of Groebli's Rail Magic book, first released in 1946.   With the release of five volumes of photographic treasures by Swiss photographer Karlheinz Weinberger (1921-2006) Sturm & Drang embarks on our most ambitious project so far. Each book is dedicated to a theme, starting with "Halbstarke" (Rebels) this spring, followed by "Sport" in late summer.   Roshan Adhihetty's Nacktwanderer is an exploration into the allegorical theme of man and nature with images shot on hikes with Swiss and German hikers in the nude. The work has been recognized internationally with outlets such as the New York Times and Süddeutsche Zeitung publishing examples. Plus Adhihetty was just nominated for the Swiss Photo Award for the work. Congrats!     "Heitere Fahne" is a restaurant, club, event space and "palace for dreams" in Bern/Switzerland. Photographer Ruben Wyttenbach has documented the young people trying to create a meeting place outside the norm of commercialist culture with lots of passion and dedication. In the book "Strand am Berg" he shows us this unique place. more information coming soon.
