Daniel Comte’s exhibition ‘Stolen Moments’ is on display at the Photobastei in Zurich from September 4 to 27, 2020. In 2014, Comte – who had established himself as one of the leading creatives in Switzerland's advertising industry – was diagnosed with Alzheimers at the age of 51. In the years since then, he placed a particular focus on his street photography, which has now culminated in an exhibition and accompanying book publication.
With great skill and charm, Curators Anatole Comte and Heike Rindfleisch manage to convey the ‘off-kilter’ perceptions associated with cognitive disorders. Their approach to presenting the artist’s images in connection with Alzheimer’s is consciously lighthearted. As a result, the showcase not only opens up a different perspective of dementia, but also proves how much can still be achieved in the wake of such a diagnosis. ‘Stolen Moments’ is the realisation of Comte’s wish to make these images accessible to the public. The book is available from September 2020 for CHF 80 (plus shipping), and can be ordered here.
