Tonatiuh Ambrosetti – Wanderjahre of an artist
Nov. 1st 2020 – Dec. 17th 2021
For the annual exhibition curated by Artphilein Library, Tonatiuh Ambrosetti selected 30 volumes (part of the library collection) as fundamental books in his experience as a photographer.
A photographic book is a story rich not only in images but also in lives.
In the text accompanying the exhibition the photographer writes:
"Biography is also an inseparable component from the work of a photographer.
In the world of photography it is difficult to pretend: many authors have fascinating lives, compelling journeys and stories to tell."
Tonatiuh Ambrosetti grew up in Ponte Capriasca (Ticino – Switzerland). In 2006 he graduated from the ECAL Ecole Cantonale d’art de Lausanne, where since 2012 he teaches Photography. In addition to photography, Tonatiuh Ambrosetti practises sculpture, engraving and drawing; always with the steadfast refusal of the digital technique.
