Book publication: Peter Turrini - “C’est la vie”, with pictures by Moritz Schell / Amalthea Verlag

Peter Turrini is one of the most famous Austrian authors, a living legend. In this book he collects poems and thoughts from the last decades. I got the chance to visit him through a period of several months in his country house, taking pictures of him working, thinking, and enjoying afternoons with his family and friends. These black and white photographs frame his literary pictures, making it an impressionistic pas-de-deux, an intensely emotional voyage through a poet’s life. Certainly one of the most beautiful projects I ever did, a true affair of the heart. And yes, you can still buy a few examples here.
