If you’ve not yet visited Photobastei yet you may be interested in going along to one of the talks put on as part of this 8 month photographic fest. On Wednesday 2nd April at 6pm it’s the turn of photographer Lorenzo Borghi who will be speaking in English about his photographic insights on how plants view the world. By taking photographs which filter out every light except for infra-red, Lorenzo Borghi creates photos of the world which take on very different perspectives.

Lorenzo is a scientist at the University of Zurich and enjoys exploring alternative types of photography including pinhole camera and wavelength filters to see the world from different angles. The talk takes place at 6pm on the 6th floor of the Photobastei in Bärengasse 29, 8001 Zürich. The link can be seen here. 

Of the many interesting exhibitions at the Photobastei, one that looks worth checking out is “Fotoszene GR” – photos of Graubunden in Switzerland which features work from the following artists: Guido Baselgia,Bianca Brunner, Kurt Caviezel,  Hans Danuser, Gabriela Gerber und Lukas Bardill, Arno Hassler, Gian Paul Lozza, Nicola Pitaro, Florio Puenter, Stephan Schenk, Gaudenz Signorell, Jules Spinatsch, Dominique Teufen and Ester Vonplon.
