Suzi Pilet

Suzi Pilet is a Swiss photographer born in 1916, whose abundant body of work includes portraits, landscapes and details of nature and architecture, as well as more dreamlike images, sometimes bordering on surrealism.  This interest in the world of dreams and the imaginary can also be found in her writings. With close ties to the literary and musical scene of French-speaking Switzerland, she is also known for her books, Les Histoires d’Amadou, created with her partner, Alexis Peiry, as well as her portraits, particularly of children, which is how she earned her living.

The photographic archives of Suzi Pilet were entrusted to the Musée de l’Elysée in 2009 and are currently being catalogued.
