Jean-Marc Yersin’s exhibition ‘Spuren’ (Traces) will be on show at the Swiss Camera Museum in Vevey until January 2, 2022. Yersin started out as a professional photographer, before serving as the Swiss Camera Museum’s co-director. In 2018, he left the post to return to his first passion, continuing a series that had initially inspired him thirty years earlier. The most recent part of the project was completed with a Leica M10-R.
Yersin’s images are brimming with visual tension. They show the conflict between man-made and natural environments, as the artist juxtaposes concrete structures with the landscapes of Lake Geneva, the Rhone River, and the Alps. With his series, Yersin offers a glimpse into the future of these feats of industrial architecture. Some decades from now, the artist suggests, these once-proud monuments will be abandoned and disused – mere sculptures in a rural landscape, reminders of a distant past.
