The Fotostiftung of Winterthur shows „Walter Bosshard, Robert Capa – The Race for China“. Through 10 February, 2019.
Walter Bosshard (1892–1975) was the first Swiss photojournalist to become internationally famous as a result of his reportage. As early as 1930, his photo reports had already reached an audience of millions. From 1931, Bosshard concentrated on China. As a photographer and writer, he followed the devastating war with Japan and the power struggle between nationalists and communists, but also dedicated himself to everyday life and street scenes.
As well as the classics, this exhibition by the Fotostiftung Schweiz also presents many unknown photographs, which have only recently come to light. These are juxtaposed with China photos by the star reporter Robert Capa (1913–1954). Capa worked in the same places as his friend Walter Bosshard and competed with him for features in the magazine Life.
