Maurice Schobinger

Maurice Schobinger Born in 1960 in Vevey, Switzerland, Maurice Schobinger graduated from the Ecole de Photographie in Vevey in 1984, and since then works as an independent photographer. In 1999, he pursued his interest in industrial photography by producing an artistic cycle about the St. Gothard Base Tunnel – the longest tunnel in the world (57 km), and between 2008 and 2011, realized several projects in Russia, documenting his passion for the people and places marked with heroic history and collective memory. Aside from his career as an artist, Schobinger develops innovative techniques in photographing buildings and building sites, and was the official photographer documenting the construction of the first subway line in Switzerland – m2 in Lausanne in 2004. Most recently, he has been exhibited at the Basia Embiricos Gallery in Paris and the Lucy Mackintosh Gallery in Lausanne, and publications about his work appeared at the Éditions Noir sur Blanc, the Éditions d’Autre Part and the Éditions Favre.
