About the Author

Christian Waeber
cwaeber Cork, Ireland
Born in Fribourg, Switzerland, in 1964, Christian Waeber lived in Boston for 20 years, and recently relocated to Ireland. His photographs have been featured in View Camera, Preservation Magazine and Art-Photo-Akt, and exhibited at numerous locales in the US and in Europe. "Like Gregory Crewdson, Waeber brings an outsider’s eye to nocturnal urban locations, loading the familiar with a transcendent significance. As Waeber puts it, he wants to give his pictures the sense that they are “a beginning of a story.” Crewdson is most known for his pictures of tense protagonists who look like they’re on the cusp of a major life event. Waeber’s photographs, on the other hand, carry more oblique menace. Unlike Crewdson’s anonymous suburbias, Waeber’s images often contain recognizable landmarks in the Boston area. These differences add up to a more intensely personal interaction between the picture and viewer. " Minying Tan, Artscope (November/December 2008)

I love these photographs albeit my least favourite is on the front cover! As I'm off to Venice shortly, I'll be thinking of these images and hoping I may capture images that are as thought-provoking and beautiful as these.
