Perspective on EPFL – Science, Architecture, People
To mark its fiftieth anniversary, the Ecole polytechnique fÃ©dÃ©rale de Lausanne (EPFL) gave free rein to three photographers, who were asked to capture the essence of the school and its future direction.
Catherine Leuteneggerâ€™s work delivered many detailed portraits of science, blurring the lines between the images she created and those that she discovered and made her own.
Bogdan Konopka, meanwhile, stripped EPFLâ€™s buildings down to their still-life form. And Olivier Christinat brought places to life by roaming the grounds and discreetly immersing himself in the society of campus.
All three offer distinct perspectives on a unique institution, one that has seen its influence spread far and wide during its first half century of existence. Â
