RENE GROEBLI - DAS AUGE DER LIEBE (2014)
Only a few numbered copies of the 2014 reprint with glassine cover available.
First published in 1954, Das Auge der Liebe (The Eye of Love) by the Swiss photographer René Groebli is a small book featuring images that were made during the honeymoon with his wife Rita in France.
In Groebli's own words: "I tried to convey the typical atmosphere of French hotel rooms. There were so many impressions: the poor-looking furniture in a cheap hotel, the word 'Amors' embroidered on the curtains. And I was in love with the girl, the girl who was my wife. I think a series of photographs should be compared with a novel or even a poem rather than a painting: let us tell something!"
This poem in black and white is now ready for another closeup. Sturm & Drang is proud to present this extended re-edition of "Das Auge der Liebe" with five additional images chosen by the photographer.
DAS AUGE DER LIEBE from René Groebli is presented as a limited edition hardcover book. This First Edition of this reprint with 30 plates is limited to 1000 numbered copies.
