Using a telephoto lens, Swiss artist Beat Streuli photographs unknown passers-by, mainly anonymous young people capturing their relationship to public space.

“Streuli’s art is fuelled by his interest in what moves people in large cities. He ponders urban situations, their delights and disappointments, their countless psychological states and social networks. He produces contemporary society portraits and in the making, also photographs the intense energy of the moment. The photographer submerges, as it were, in the crowd, whilst preserving some detachment from the passers-by through his telephoto lens. His pictures consciously evoke a hint of voyeurism and this consistently accompanies his perspective on people.” (Rupert Pfab in the book)
