Helvetica is the first volume in the new “Collection – Photo Elysée”, and illustrates Werner Bischof’s Swiss work. The previously-unpublished contact sheets he produced between 1932 and 1945 give an understanding of his taste for abstraction and form. Moving from fashion to landscape, from nudes to plants, the book follows Bischof before he began his post-war reporting and joined Magnum Photos.
