My home is the Engadine Valley. The striking landscape with its harsh climate has shaped me into who I am now. It grounds me and profoundly touches my being.The awe-inspiring force of nature evokes humbleness while being genuine and brutally honest. My works attempt to grasp this magnificence and undeniable honesty in nature. Analog photography enables me to achieve exactly that. The light is captured unaltered on photographic paper. Actualized analog magic Timeless, essential, candid.

 

In order to achieve an almost unprecedented amount of detail in analog photography

I decided to capture the light on ultra large photographic paper. This meant I had to build a custom camera that could handle the oversize format. The camera ended up being a walk-in cabinet the size of a horse trailer. It literally became my second home – my Pied à Terre.

14.May 2019  „So langsam wie er fotografieren nur wenige“

Die Kamera von Daniel Meuli hat die Dimension und die Erscheinung eines Pferdeanhängers.

Sie besteht aus zusammengenieteten Aluminiumplatten – und sieht damit schwerer aus, als sie ist.

Der Engadiner Fotograf kann die Kamera ohne fremde Hilfe herumwuchten und hinter sein Auto hängen….

Eine Gondel als Kamera - Analoge Fotokunst am Abgrund

 

 

SKI Service Magazin Winter 2019

Meuli‘s most recent project is a suspended Camera Magna:

this fall, he was able to convert a cabin of the Signal cableway in St Moritz into a camera.

Through a hatch in the floor of the cabin, he photographed the forest below. The result is surprising

and many will wonder, once more, what they are supposed to see in the picture.
