Photographs: Together and Alone by Karlheinz Weinberger

Introduction by Collier Schorr
Photographs: Together & Alone presents a landmark entry in the lifework of Zürich photographer Karlheinz Weinberger (1921-2006), containing over 200 never-before-published vintage photographic prints that were re-discovered in 2017. Edited by Ben Estes, this unique collection pairs images of Weinberger’s most famous subjects, the “Halbstarke,” a loosely organized group of Swiss “rebels” in the late 1950s and early 1960s, carousing at local carnivals and on a camping trip, with a much more private side of Weinberger’s oeuvre: solo portraits of men from the late 1950s through the mid-1970s whom he invited into his makeshift studio in the rooms of the apartment he shared with his mother.
