LOCAL STUDIES, published by etc. publications and designed by onlab, presents the work of swiss photographer Joël Tettamanti. "The photograph's rich texture and detail is always impressive. Beautifully printed and featuring both academic and irreverent passages exploring its themes, LOCAL STUDIES is an idiosyncratic and enthralling insight into a photographer's singular vision." Wallpaper, January 2007
The frequent traveler and an eclectic observer Tettamanti travels to places as far away and remote as Greenland and Lesotho or high up into the mountains. He is the one who sees, what others will only realise once his images appear on magazine pages or gallery walls. He has the rare eye and understanding for the insignificant.
