Miscellaneous Information:

«Didier Ruef, born in Geneva in 1961, outstanding independent professional photographer, has been widely acclaimed for his photographic work related to mountain farmers in Switzerland.

His expressive black and white pictures demonstrate with understanding and sensitivity their laborious life and daily struggle throughout all seasons and pose the crucial question, whether this form of life, so important in the past, can continue in today’s modern world.»
