RENÈ GROEBLI, THE EYE OF LOVE

Renè Groebli, The Eye Of Love

The Eye of Love by Swiss photographer René Groebli (1927), in which he captured his newly married wife Rita in 1953. The young photographer documents his honeymoon in Paris. Most of the photographs were taken at Montparnasse, at 7 Rue Vandamme, now known as Hotel Gaite. Groebli, who was then 26 years old. The photographer portrays the remains of the night of love perpetuated in the privacy of some sheets, a room and the remains of a shared breakfast, armed with a camera and the passion of the lover, portrayed the honeymoon with his wife in a full landscape of love and intimacy. Groebli, who at that time was dedicated to industrial and advertising photography, decided to document his love and that was a turning point. The result is ‘The Eye of Love’, a series that with the passage of time, excites more if possible. And far from trying to mythologize his work, he declares: “I tried to portray the atmosphere of the French hotels. There were so many sensations! The old furniture of the cheap hotel, the love embroidered in the curtains.”
