The Swiss photographer Roshan Adhihetti (* 1990 in Lausanne) accompanied several nude hikes in 2014, e.g. in Germany, and became known far beyond the borders of his home country with his exam photos on this subject. He was also awarded the “Prix Photoforum PasquArt” in Biel for his series of photos about nude hikers. In 2015, his illustrated book “Nacktwanderer” [en: “Nude Hikers”] was published with an extended selection of photos.
In 2018, he received the renowned “Swiss Photo Award" for his series “Konstruktion der Wirklichkeit” [en: “Construction of Reality”], for which he was already nominated in 2017. In addition to his professional activities as a photographer in Zurich, he is involved in a wide range of projects such as the “Animal Frame” in 2019, an exhibition on the practices of the meat-processing industry at the “Haus der Ameisen” [en: “House of Ants”] in St. Gallen. He is a member of the renowned Swiss photographers' association “13Photo” and works as a lecturer at the School of Design, St. Gallen.
