In 2001, Edition Patrick Frey published Welcome Aboard, a compilation of Walter Pfeiffer’s photographs from 1980 to 2000. The book revealed Pfeiffer’s importance as a pioneer of contemporary photography and laid the foundation for his rise from a classic “artist’s artist” to a world-renowned artist who went on to work for international magazines like Vogue and shoot campaigns for luxury brands like Bottega Veneta.

Chez Walti retraces the arc of this recent work over the past 23 years and shows how Pfeiffer renewed his photographic gaze, absorbing inuences from the current zeitgeist even while remaining unmistakably himself in both his personal and commissioned work. Pfeiffer’s light, witty touch and unfailing eye for beauty are the hallmarks of his gorgeous guys and cheeky gals, lush still lifes and bucolic landscapes, chic fashion and bare skin. Chez Walti catapults us into Walter Pfeiffer’s weightless parallel universe, whose magic has intensied over the past two decades.

The work gives a face to those tropisms that describe spontaneous and automatic reactions initiated by vivid emotions in response to primarily needs or past events in life. Based on archival pictures from her family, the digital intervention interprets these memories through a new angle, exploring the effect of dissipation generated by time passing and driven by the forces of an inherited memory.
