Summary note:
Filmmaker Iwan Schumacher, known for his portraits of artists, bought a small camera in early 1972 and took it with him everywhere he went. The camera became his notebook. Schumacher subsequently gave himself up to the lure of the landscapes, people and mood-changing lighting that he came across. With his little Canon he could shoot away without intention, without prescribed subject or theme, much the way we take pictures with cell phones today. Schumacher spent the first half of 1972 in England, where he'd been teaching photography at an art school for a year and a half. After his return to Switzerland he assisted on a documentary film and got to work on making his own first film. Over time his interest in continuing his photographic diary waned till in late 1972 he stopped taking pictures altogether and devoted himself entirely to film.
