About Roger Eberhard

Roger Eberhard is both an artist and a publisher. His photographic works often deal with the political and sociological implications of a world that has transformed from an industrialized to an optimizing society. Works by Roger Eberhard are exhibited internationally and found in important collections, both public and private. In 2011 he founded the Zurich based publishing company b.frank books, which publishes 4 to 6 artist’s books per year. Currently Roger Eberhard lives and works in Stallikon (CH) and in Berlin.

Taken from the series ‘Escapism’, Eberhard focused on the distinctively Swiss tradition of collecting peel-off creamer lids. This pastime became a real obsession for some as, for decades, they swapped their lids to build a collection. These lids became so widely distributed that they permeated Swiss collective imagination. Surprisingly, the pictures on them span all genres of photography. Roger Eberhard reappropriated exotic landscapes by photographing large high-resolution close-ups. He plunged into the heart of a very Swiss way of briefly escaping everyday life while pondering over such lids during coffee breaks. The fact that the images are grainy betrays their true nature and brings viewers back to reality.
