MAKING OF DAS AUGE DER LIEBE
A strictly limited edition of 300 copies, numbered and signed by the artist.
First published in 1954, Das Auge der Liebe (The Eye of Love) by the Swiss photographer René Groebli is a visual love letter 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!"
Compiled, designed and told by the artist, THE MAKING OF AUGE DER LIEBE is the first comprehensive look into the making of the legendary photobook. With never before seen images this book (in the same format as the original) is a must-have for every photobook collector and aficionado.
THE MAKING OF DAS AUGE DER LIEBE from René Groebli is presented as a limited edition hardcover book.
René Groebli is a Swiss photographer born 1927 in Zurich.
