Ursula Sprecher und Andi Cortellini

In their series Freizeitfreunde, the Swiss photographers Ursula Sprecher (b. 1970) and Andi Cortellini (b. 1965) show group portraits of people who meet regularly due to a shared interest. No matter what they call themselves – interest group, association, club, clique or league – the focus in these groups is always on voluntary commitment and the joy of pursuing a common cause or shared idea. These staged pictures were each taken at a carefully selected location, at a scheduled time, with scenery built and specifically arranged to show a certain number of members of the group. The subjects of the group pictures come from all walks of life, age groups, ethnicities and religions. The pictures betray thorough research and organization: the number of subjects and their clothing, the props, accessories – nothing is left to chance. This approach results in unusual, intriguing and in some cases even perplexing images and compositions. The photo series has been exhibited internationally and published in numerous magazines, such as chrismon, Geo, Tageswoche and NZZ.
