GUSTAVEROUD.COM: Gustave Roud (1897-1976), one of Switzerland’s foremost Francophone authors, is mostly known for his poetic prose writings. After the death of C.F. Ramuz, Roud was known as a master by many young poets: Maurice Chappaz, Jacques Chessex, Philippe Jaccottet. His correspondence, his diary, and his critical writings are also a testimony to his prolific consideration of literature and the arts. However, for several years now, his work as a photographer (never exhibited during his lifetime) has also moved to the forefront: in this way, Gustave Roud is now considered to be one of the great European writer/photographers of the period between the two World Wars.
