Life, a Sport Jules Decrauzat – A Pioneer of Photoreportage, Fotostiftung Schweiz, Winterthur

Life, a Sport Jules Decrauzat – A Pioneer of Photoreportage at Fotostiftung Schweiz, Winterthur, sheds new light on more than 1,250 glass neg­a­tives dat­ing from the pe­riod be­tween 1910 and 1925 that had sur­vived the rav­ages of time in the archive of the Swiss pic­ture agency Keystone. While the qual­ity of the pho­tographs is known, the circum­stances under which they were taken is largely ob­scure. The work of Switzerland’s first important photojournalist, Jules Decrauzat (1879-1960), extends far beyond sports photography in the narrower sense, and successfully portrays his era and its fascination with speed.
