Augustin Rebetez

Born in 1986 in Switzerland. Lives and works in Mervelier, Jura.

Augustin Rebetez trained at the Photography School in Vevey. His work on the world of parties, Gueules de Bois (Hangovers) attracted attention and was exhibited simultaneously at the Vienna Photoforum and the musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, Switzerland. The musée de l’Elysée also selected it for their project ‘Regeneration2’, which involved an international tour (Milan, Paris, New York, Beijing). 2010 was a busy year for exhibitions and, at the Rencontres d’Arles, Rebetez was also laureate of the Photo Folio Review. This year, Augustin Rebetez’s work is on display at the Mois de la Photographie, Montreal, at the Aarau Kunsthaus (Switzerland) and at the Rencontres d’Arles. He remains close to his roots, still lives in the village of his birth in the Swiss Jura and works close to his childhood home, where he has begun a small revolution against cynicism, indifference and neglect. Image by image, he is slowly creating strange music.
