Arnold Odermatt

For 50 years First Lieutenant and police photographer Arnold Odermatt documented traffic accidents and the colleagues of his native police department in Niwalden, Switzerland. While the subject matter of his pictures may seem severe most of his pictures are anything but. Because the photographs were made by and for the police department they are detailed and seemingly objective. What makes them so much fun is Odermatt's obvious strong sense of humor and personal point of view. In addition, many of the pictures feel as if they were plucked directly from the world of Jacques Clouseau and the Pink Panther. Here is a link to his books published by Steidl And of course he has his own website:www.nordwestfilm.
