Hans Finsler's work in the Swiss Werkbund and his collaboration with architects, designers and mediators are the focus of the publication, illustrated with his photo series for Swiss companies. The great importance of his teaching at the first Swiss photography class is demonstrated by the work of his students Werner Bischof, Michael Wolgensinger, Emil Schulthess, Ernst Scheidegger, Serge Libiszewski and René Burri, among others.
