pied à terre
Daniel Meuli was born in the Engadine Valley. The striking landscape with its harsh climate has shaped him into who he is now. It grounds him and profoundly touches his being. The awe-inspiring force of nature evokes humbleness through its genuine and brutally honest presence. Daniels works attempt to grasp this magnificence and undeniable honesty in nature. Analog photography seems to be the perfect approach. The light is captured unaltered on photographic paper. Pure analog magic. Timeless, essential, candid. In order to achieve an almost unprecedented amount of detail in analog photography he decided to capture the light 1:1 on ultra large photographic paper. This meant he had to build a custom camera that could handle the oversize format. The camera ended up being a walk-in cabinet the size of a horse trailer. It literally became Daniel Meulis second home – his Pied à Terre.
