An up-to-date book featuring the multifaceted photographs by Walter Pfeiffer—a storyboard full to bursting with a unique view of the world.

Walter Pfeiffer (*1946)—artist, photographer, poster designer, playwright, and filmmaker—has been shuttling back and forth for years between the visual worlds of art and lifestyle. Regardless of whether he is staging a still life or getting closer to people with his camera, Pfeiffer’s photographs always have a latently erotic aspect. Often, he works over a longer period of time with his models to develop a melancholic, seductive atmosphere almost resembling a state of sleepwalking, which, however, never seems voyeuristic or crude. In a manner practically unlike anyone else’s, Pfeiffer discovers color-intensive and expressive contexts in daily life. Through his extraordinary perspectives and scenes he gives his ordinary objects and protagonists an almost glamorous dignity and beauty.

“A breathtaking album. Seldom has ordinary life been so erotic, and bashfulness so glamorous, as they are in front of Walter Pfeiffer’s camera.” (annabelle)
