"The Eye of Love" was introduced at the "KYOTOGRAPHIE Kyoto International Photo Festival" with the theme of "Love" in 2017. A personalised book about my honeymoon with my wife Rita is the 2nd book published in the 1950s.
And the 1st published in private version in 1949 is "Rail Magic".
Although several revised editions have been published in the last few decades, this is the latest edition. Compared to the original, which consists of 15 plates, this book consists of a total of 74 images, consisting of the plates taken on the first train journey from Switzerland to France.
Inspired by the image of the movie / video, Groebli skilfully manipulated the blur / bokeh after a self-inquiry about how to add “movement” and “dynamism” to the still picture A graceful and graphical world expressed using light and dark black and white. One of the best masterpieces in the history of photography.
