PRE ORDER NOW. WILL BE RELEASED MID APRIL.

I am not a naked hiker.

The images of naked bodies taken by the young Swiss photographer Roshan Adhihetty offer glimpses into a world previously unknown to me. As a film-maker, this is also something I seek to do when I look for subjects for my films. I seek out worlds and perspectives that I don’t yet know; that intrigue and unsettle me; that move me and make me think; I seek out images and worlds that I can’t tear myself away from.  

In this respect, these genuinely impressive photographs of men and women hiking naked in Germany, Switzerland and Austria captivate me. They are images that go beyond the pure documentary, and, through their staged composition, also direct our gazes at human existence itself.

Images that speak of humankind, of our great yearning to be at one with nature; but at the same time of our vulnerability when faced with the might and majesty of that nature. You don’t need to be a naked hiker for that. Despite his many years involved with the subject, and despite his many years spent accompanying the naked hikers, Roshan Adhihetty also didn’t become one. What he has succeeded in doing with these photographs, however, is as exceptional as it is evident: he has managed to find beauty in the unadorned.

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.
