Photographer #333: Augustin Rebetez

Augustin Rebetez, 1986, Switzerland, is a conceptual photographic artist who also uses film, drawing and painting as ways of expression. With his work he takes us into a dark and gritty world. He got recognized with his series Gueles de Bois (Hangover). It explores alcohol, one of the most cherished aspects of local folklore. For his series tout ce qui a le visage de la colère (...) he was asked by the Kunstmuseum of Bern to explore anger for a group exhibition on the seven deadly sins. The images created a pessimistic essay on rebellion and revolution. Augustin was selected as one of the photographers for the reGeneration2 project with a travelling exhibition and book as result. In 2010 he was the winner of the photo folio review at the prestigious festival Rencontres d'Arles resulting in a current solo exhibition at this years edition. The following images come from the series Afterdark, Crabe and tout ce qui a le visage de la colère (...).
