About Ball Nights 1934-1950
To Jakob Tuggener (1904-88) the dazzling nights of the balls in the St. Moritz Palace Hotel were among the most beautiful and fascinating events that life could offer. He submerged himself with his Leica in this world of luxury with even more enthusiasm than he had in the factory world that inspired his famous book Fabrik (1943). Usually unnoticed by the illustrious guests, he captured fleeting moments and details, facial expressions and gestures, which he condensed into cinematographically perceived series of pictures and book layouts.
