Book project Marcel Chassot abstract – geometricize – aestheticize
Artistic photography as survival strategy

chassot Marcel Chassot, born 1947 in Zurich, earned a doctorate in economic science. As a self-taught photographer, especially his handling of light and its macro shooting made him known outside Switzerland. Chassot has won some prestigious international competitions, i.e. the Kodak European Gold Award and the Gold Medal of the Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographic (FIAP). His works are continuously published in specialized journals and books and have been introduced to a wide audience in numerous exhibitions, including the Leica galleries in Germany and Switzerland.

Marcel Chassot's new book abstrahieren - geometrisieren - ästhetisieren (abstract – geometricize – aestheticize) is divided into the areas of macro photography, people and architecture & industry, and is especially interesting for photo enthusiasts and photographers, as each of these topics contains instructions for image composition and technical comments. For many of his images the author has used software from LaserSoft Imaging. He states in his book:

« Especially the multiple exposure method (Multi-Exposure) developed by LaserSoft Imaging resulted to significantly better results due to the increased Dynamic Range: More details in very bright and dark areas were captured. Concerning older slides also SilverFast‘s infrared dust and scratch removal (iSRD) proved to be extremely useful. Using this feature, I managed to avoid a lot of elaborate retouching. »

If you want to purchase the book, you will find various sources on the author's websites.
