Hans Danuser (b. 1953) is one of the most important Swiss artists of the present. As early as the late 1990s, he gained international renown with his spectacular series of photographic works.
From the 1990s on, Danuser embarked on the first works of the The Mount Fuji of Davos photo series. He isolated, enlarged and dissected the individual mountain images, thereby opening up an entirely new view of the visual subject.
Danuser is one of the trailblazers of a new photography whose methods are also science-driven. The photographic process he worked on through the years, which recalls the Greek origin of the word “photography” as “writing with light,” led, among other things, to “matography,” a process he specifically developed and patented.
For the first time, the Kirchner Museum Davos presents the complete work series "The Fujiyama of Davos" with a total of 100 matographies.
