About the Book
Born and raised in Germany, Walter began taking pictures during the 1970s after seeing Ernst Haas’s In America. The book presents a selection of his work that exhibits a deep sense of visual play and a grasp of form and content. Walter shows atmospheric, graphic and sensory images that often raise questions. Looking at them, you might ask yourself, "I've never seen that before. What is this?", while others let you say, "Why have I never noticed the beauty of such ordinary things?" Although the content of the photographs is diverse, they all share the same vision – the love for the beauty of our world.
This book is a true collector's piece that will reward anyone who loves visual arts.

Roland Walter is an independent photographer based near Zurich, Switzerland. From the early age of 12 he was fascinated by capturing the beauty of our world. So he started photography more than 40 years ago. Roland loves to explore the world with his camera. "There are so many interesting things out there which are really a joy to look at. I just follow my instincts to take compelling images which show the beauty and intrinsic character of the subject. I like to share the small moments in everyday life which are usually not being noticed.", he says. Today Roland concentrates on his personal work but continues to take on assignments for commercial, documentary, editorial, portraits and sports. Fine art prints of his personal work are available in limited editions.
