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.
