The Eye of Love | A Photographic Love Poem by René Groebli, France, 1953


First published in 1954, 'Das Auge der Liebe (The Eye of Love)' by Swiss photographer 
René Groebli is a small book featuring images that were made during the honeymoon 
with his wife Rita in France.

"I tried to convey the typical atmosphere of French hotel rooms. There were so many impressions: 
the poor-looking furniture in a cheap hotel, the word 'Amors' embroidered on the curtains. 
And I was in love with the girl, the girl who was my wife. I think a series of photographs 
should be compared with a novel or even a poem rather than a painting: let us tell something!"

René Groebli
