Publication Date 2001
Description Swiss photographer Hans Danuser was born in 1953. His work is represented in various international collections, including the photography collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Urs Stahel, born in 1953, is the director of the Winterthur Fotomuseum and the editor of a number of publications on photography. He lives in Zurich. The various environments of modern science--genetic engineering, atomic energy, pathology, and animal testing--are the subjects of Hans Danuser's austerely beautiful black-and-white photographs. Recent series included in "Frost" push his signature motifs toward abstraction, revealing the microscopic secrets of frozen embryos, the precious yet precarious body fragments of murder victims, and the terrifying beauty of eroded soil. In an accompanying essay, Urs Stahel, director of the Fotomuseum Winterthur, examines the development of Danuser's oeuvre and his persistent investigation of the nexuses of power and knowledge Essay by Urs Stahel.
