geneva & montreux

Visiting swiss artist Gilbert Mazliah
in his house and studio in Troinex near Geneva.
I met the the first time Gilbert in the eighties in Luxembourg
and have since then printed regularly screen prints for him.

The alphorn echoing in Geneva's old city.
Originally the alphorn was used as means of communication
in the mountainous regions.

A visit at the MAMCO in Geneva.
