Biography - Adrian Moser

Born in the year of the Lord 1966 in the booming watch-manufacturing city of Biel/Bienne in Switzerland my youth was a typical swiss one. This means good schools, good parents, a well organized life. It would have probably gone on, if I didn't drop out high-school, because I was more interested in computers, drawing and the graffiti-scene than in math and Latin language.

This was the time of exploring the world. Travels lead me to South-East Asia, India and the African countries of the north, like Morocco and Algeria. I spent several months in England and tried to learn the English language (hope you understand this text). But life is cruel and even swiss people have to work to earn their living.

So had I.

To make it right, I started an apprenticeship as a computer programmer at the Swiss Railways. Four years passed by in my position as a state-paid computer programmer, when I suddenly realized that this could not have been all. (Yes, it's this thought men in their fifties usually come up with).

Nevertheless, I quit my job and started traveling again. It turned out to become a two year journey to places like Borneo, Vietnam, China and Tibet. This was actually the first time I took a camera on a trip. Before this, I always thought taking pictures in foreign countries automatically transformed into a member of the tourist species.

Now I discovered how the world seen through a lens was a different one. Being able to slice out a 125th of a second of the world as it is, is probably one of the most radical interpretations of reality. And still, photography has the reputation to show reality. The tension between these two opposites keeps me fascinated till today.

By the end of the trip I was convinced:

I had to become a photographer.
