Walter Pfeiffer, whose work in the 1970s and 1980s prefigured many of the decisive developments in contemporary art today, is a classic artist's artist--famous and beloved among art aficionados, yet almost forgotten by the public at large. Now, it's the time to discover him as his images seem timelier than ever. Welcome Aboard! Photographs 1980-2000 is, at the same time, a monograph on Pfeiffer's photographic work and an artist's book, a photo-novel all of its own. Pfeiffer takes you on a long trip from suburban bliss to the horse race at Ascot, from wind-swept beaches to majestic mountain tops. Pfeiffer knows our dreams and artfully plays with them. In his still lives, landscapes, and portraits of beautiful boys and mischievous women, Pfeiffer celebrates his quest for beauty and glamour with sophistication, irony, and wit. Pfeiffer leads you in a world between reality and reverie, snapshot and mise-en-scene. It's a photo album from Arcadia. With simple means Pfeiffer creates intelligent and classic images of beauty and bliss, imbued with a wistful awareness of their artifice. Stylish, suggestive, and erotic, his images are an encyclopedia of desire.

Walter Pfeiffer ist als Fotograf mittlerweile weltberühmt. Das zeichnerische Werk des Künstlers kennen freilich nur wenige, dabei begann Pfeiffer seine künstlerische Laufbahn als Zeichner. Das Buch bietet einen überfälligen Überblick über sein zeichnerisches Schaffen, das in einem reichen Dialog mit seinen fotografischen Arbeiten steht. In den frühen 1970er-Jahren schuf Pfeiffer grossformatige, hyperrealistische Bleistiftzeichnungen, die auch Ausgangspunkt seines fotografischen Schaffens waren, da er dafür Vorlagen brauchte. In diesem Stil entstanden freie Arbeiten, aber auch Pfeiffers legendäre Poster für das Zürcher Filmpodium, Zeitschriftenillustrationen und Auftragsportraits. Ab den 1980ern und vor allem in den 90er-Jahren, als Pfeiffer vorübergehend das Fotografieren aufgab, folgten Zeichnungen in Tusche, Farbstift und Wasserfarben, in denen das elegante, freie Spiel der Linien und Farben in den Vordergrund tritt - intime Portraits von schönen Jungs und engen Freundinnen, Stillleben und Blumenbilder. Sie sind geprägt von Heiterkeit und wacher Sinnlichkeit, sicherem Strich und dem Oszillieren zwischen zeichnerischer Reduktion und der Lust an ornamentaler Fülle. Das Buch ist kein konventioneller Werkschau-Band, sondern ein eigenständiges Künstlerbuch, das den Zeichnungen ihre Lebendigkeit und die Betrachter einen neuen Walter Pfeiffer entdecken lässt.(Verlagshomepage).

Walter Pfeiffer's Scrapbooks from 1969 to 1982 are a very unique Wunderkammer. Pfeiffer's polaroids and photographs alternate with miscellaneous objects newspaper clippings, postcards, packaging, tickets and brief punning notes. Pfeiffer assembles all of this into a large collage full of surprising references and comparisons that is both a visual diary and creative foundation of his artistic work. In his Scrapbooks, Pfeiffer's keen view of Eros, Zeitgeist and popular culture, his disrespectful humor as well as his appreciation for the poetry in the mundane and banal, are sharply revealed. They offer a view into Pfeiffer's meandering and playful universe and are a contemporary document that captures the Zeitgeist of the 1970s and 1980s with ephemeral elegance.

In the second book from EPF on Zu'rich-based photographer and graphic artist Walter Pfeiffer (b. 1946), the artists little-known drawings, long overshadowed by his commercial and homoerotic photographic works, have finally come to light. Pfeiffers large-scale hyperrealistic pencil drawings from the 1970s served as points of departure and working models for many of his photographs and eventually gave rise to his legendary posters for the Zu'rich Filmpodium, magazine illustrations and commissioned portraits. Originally trained as a draftsman, Pfeiffer used China ink, colored pencil and watercolor to draw beautiful boys, women friends, still lifes and flowers in the 1980s and 90s. Characterized by a cheerful, wakeful sensuality, the drawings alternate between graphic reduction and rich ornamentation. Drawings follows Pfeiffers encyclopedic publication, Welcome Aboard Photographs 19802000 (EPF, 2001). His work can be found in the collections of Kunsthaus Zu'rich, Fotomuseum Winterthur and Bundeskunstsammlung Bern, the Windsor Collection and Sir Elton John Photography Collection, among others.
