Lost In Music

The series “Faceless” shows musicians who lost themselves while playing, singing or rocking the stage. I photographed these images during the 2017 edition of the “Greenfield Festival” in Interlaken, Switzerland. The inspiration for creating this series came from the understanding that these are precious moments, the musicians are unaware of what’s going on about them. They are dwelling in their own creation. Only the guitar, the voice, the music and nothing else – lost in music.

Born in 1965 in Stans, Switzerland, Josef Buergi started around 2000 with photography. He studied engineering at the Bale Institute of Technology and works now full-time as a project and team leader for the local government. As a pure autodidact, he developed the knowledge by himself but also by studying the masters. His music photography, together with travel, have become two of his life’s passions. His photography focuses on music, culture, landscapes, and wildlife; images that reflect a spatial and temporal journey through life.
