Christian Vogt is one of Switzerland’s most important contemporary artists. For nearly fifty years, he has engaged in a complex dialogue with his central medium of expression—photography—rendering a new image language that puts him ahead of his time. Each image is a projection that invites many different reactions depending on the viewer, making each photograph an exploration of vision.

The first book to focus solely on Vogt’s work, Christian Vogt: The Longer I Look ranges across his full body of work, including both conceptual work and a selection of commissions. The nearly four hundred images offer a comprehensive overview of the artist’s philosophical concerns and his capacity to visualize “the things behind things.” The book also features an introduction by Vogt and a conversation between Vogt and the artist and curator Martin Gasser.
