Hans Steiner is one of the greatest Swiss photographers. The fonds documents pre-war Switzerland, mobilisation and the post-war period (1935-1955) in all strata of society and throughout the country. Sport, fashion as well as industry are subjects he likes. Photographer and reporter, he takes a penetrating look at the daily life of Switzerland and its inhabitants between 1930 and 1960. During this period, he produced a large number of remarkable images that were published in the illustrated press. The quality and diversity of his work make him one of the major figures of 20th century Swiss photography.

The collection, held by the Musée de l'Elysée, includes 6000 vintages, thousands of contact sheets, hundreds of slides, 105,000 6×6 negatives. In short, a very important set of phototypes from the photographer's family and estate.

The Steiner collection, a vast project to restore, enhance and promote 1471 original prints, was carried out by the Musée de l'Elysée in partnership with the University of Lausanne, Memoriav, the Swiss Institute for the Conservation of Photography ISCP in Neuchâtel and the Büro für Fotografiegeschichte in Berne. Project duration: 2006 to 2010.

A privileged witness, both unconventional and resolutely optimistic, of a society that is evolving towards consumption, Hans Steiner proposes a different vision of Switzerland, more urban, in which women, sports, leisure and advertising acquire a new visibility.

From 1930 to 1960, he produced a large number of remarkable images, published in the illustrated press. The quality and diversity of his work make him one of the major figures of Swiss photography. The exhibition has the dual ambition of showing Steiner's most representative and seductive images, and offering a contemporary view of a historical subject. It emphasizes the graphic qualities of Steiner's work and the originality of the subjects treated by the Swiss photographer, in order to highlight his qualities as an image creator. The exhibition consists of a selection of original vintage prints and recent prints, selected on the basis of the contact story boards.
