1956: Photo Sketches of a Slow Journey
In 1955, Swiss architect Dolf Schnebli and his wife, Clarissa, climbed into a VW Beetle and spent a year on an overland trek from Venice to India and back. The world was a lot bigger place when Schnebli took off on this “slow journey” to study architectural history, especially the urban development of old cities, ruins and excavations. Now, more than fifty years after his trip, Schnebli’s black and white photos, shot with his trusty Leica, are being published for the first time after gathering dust for decades as contact prints in his sketchbooks. Combined with text excerpts from his journal, this is a powerful portrait of a world long gone, through an architect’s eyes.
