Emil Schulthess and the panorama
A Swiss photographer particularly active in the 1950-1960 years, Emil Schulthess (1913-1996) was passionately interested in our planet and the diversity of its nature and it cultures. A pioneer of colour photography, he explored the image in many forms, including the aerial panorama of the 1970s, and published many works and albums, which made him famous. The Swiss Foundation of Photography at Winterthur houses the archives of Emil Schulthess, which it has managed since 2010, while the Swiss Camera Museum looks after various pieces of his equipment. This display presents the amazing cameras and special devices that the photographer had developed for his panoramic pictures, together with some spectacular photographs taken from his archives, which set their stamp on the era.
