We run the Fotolabor:
Michel Dettling, Production Manager
Specialized in the production and processing of digital image data and prints
Bettina Gähwiler, Trained Lab Technician
Specialized in analog techniques and prints
We are part of the last generation of trained young photo lab technicians and have many years of experience. While many classic labs in other places have discontinued their work, we carry on the craft of photography related techniques with conviction and perseverance, and are expanding our capacities.
The Fotolabor St. Gallen was established in 2009 by Felix Lehner, Kunstgiesserei and Sitterwerk, and Katalin Deér, artist, and other individuals, and in just a few years has established itself as a professional specialist lab. Situated in the Sittertal, on the edge of the city of St. Gallen, the lab is very well connected through its proximity and cooperation with the Kunstgiesserei and the Sitterwerk – with its Material Archive, Art Library, guest studio, and the Kesselhaus Josephsohn – and also well visited. Here as there, we are working using both traditional analogue as well as also new digital techniques.
The Fotolabor St. Gallen works with artists, photographers and filmmakers, galleries and museums, the fashion, textile, and design sector, architecture firms and graphic design studios, theaters, administrative offices, libraries and archives, advertising and web- designers, publishing houses and print media, et cetera.
We would be pleased to show you our lab or to produce a test print to convince you of the quality of our work. For international clients, we can also offer regular transport to China and the United States.
