“Still (Noon)” by Photographer Shane Lavalette

A lovely series by New York-based photographer Shane Lavalette (previously featured here). Based on one of Swiss photographer Theo Frey’s (1908–1997) signature series, Lavalette retraced Frey’s steps, traveling to the same 12 villages Frey photographed in the 1930s.

See more images from “Still (Noon)” below or on display as part of the exhibition “Unfamiliar Familiarities: Outside Views on Switzerland” at the Musee de l’Elysee October 25, 2017 to January 7, 2018. All images courtesy of Shane Lavalette and Fotostiftung Schweiz. Theo Frey contact sheets from the archive of Fotostiftung Schweiz (Winterthur, Switzerland).
