Swiss-born photographer René Groebli has a body of work that spans over 60 years. He started out as a photo reporter in the 1940s, working for magazine Die Woche and going on assignments to Africa and the Middle East for London agence Black Star. In the mid-fifties he founded his own studio for advertising and industrial photography. Here he specialised in colour photography and he experimented with the dye transfer process. Then, in the 1980s, he returned to creating artistic essays in black and white. He continues his personal work until the present day.
