More than just a foto

Portraits for eternity

We have known Kurt Moser and Barbara Holzknecht from Lightcatcher for years and had been planning to surprise our parents with an exclusive gift for some time. Lightcatcher are dedicated to the most original form of photography, ambrotyping.
Last May, the time had finally come: Kurt and Rita were photographed in a very special way. This method of photography, which is over a hundred years old, captures "invisible" light.
