ARTIST I LIKE: WALTER PFEIFFER


Swiss artist Walter Pfieffer began his artistic career as a painter and draughtsman.  In the 1970s he turned to photography as a means of taking "notes".  His exploration of the homoerotic world of Zürich earned him wold-wide renown.  These photos are from a recent show of his work at galerie Sultana in Paris.

See more of his print work HERE, and tumblr tags HERE.

  1. Okay, so I'm obsessed with this image of the man mounting the wall. It really is a magnificent artistic statement. Man, strong, athletic, conquering and at the same time on vulnerable and available. The mounter can be mounted.
