Jacob Tuggener – Ballnächte 1934–1950
To Tuggener, the balls in the Palace and other Swiss grand hotels represented the finest and most fascinating occasions that life could offer. Irresistibly attracted by the glamour of fur and champagne glasses and the bejewelled décolletés and delicate skin of beautiful women, he preferred immersing himself with his Leica in this world of luxury to even the factory world or the simple life in the country. Usually unnoticed by the illustrious guests, he snatched details and moments, facial expressions and gestures, which he then condensed into numerous cinematographically conceived picture series and book maquettes: intensive mood pictures between eroticism and boredom, liveliness and exhaustion, craziness and dream.
