BARBARA DAVATZ: AS TIME GOES BY -- 1982, 1988, 1997, 2014. Fotostiftung Schweiz, Winterthur, 2015. Published by Edition Patrick Frey, Zurich. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 168 pp. 34 x 28 cm. ISBN 9783905929799 Bilingual in German and English.
Publisher's description: Swiss artist-photographer Barbara Davatz's As Time Goes By is now considered a classic, with its frontal black-and-white images of a dozen pairs of young people looking straight at the camera against a light gray studio backdrop. In 2014, 32 years after having taken the very first pictures of her subjects, Davatz resumed this long-term conceptual project shot in Zurich with a new round of portraits of the same cast of characters. The project now covers three generations, their ranks swelled over the years with the addition of 14 children and several grandchildren. Without revealing any personal information, the series narrates the separations, aging and loss, growth of families and the inheritance of family traits over time, creating a portrait not only of people but of changing times. Davatz casts a sober but sympathetic eye on the personal and collective details of her subjects in this straightforward yet epic narrative.
