In the winter of 2021/22, the Tal Museum is dedicating a solo exhibition to photographer and filmmaker Daniel Infanger (*1967).

Daniel Infanger grew up in Engelberg and worked for a long time as a ski instructor. After assisting various photographers for several years, he opened his own studio in 1990 and has been working as a freelance photographer and filmmaker ever since. Daniel Infanger works in the fields of advertising, people and interior photography. He works for advertising agencies and photographs for international clients. He lives and works in Basel and Zurich.

Daniel Infanger has participated in numerous group exhibitions; in 2014 he was represented at Photobastei Zurich with a solo exhibition "Nira Alpina - Artists in residence".

In Engelberg, Daniel Infanger presents an exhibition on three floors that gives an overview of his diverse projects. An important branch of his work is portraits of musicians (including Stefan Eicher); he is showing these on the first floor of the museum. On the second floor, Infanger's passion for historical photography and reproduction techniques is evident. His floral cyanotypes (also known as iron blue printing; a noble photographic printing process invented in 1842) and collodion wet plate photographs captivate with their mysterious imagery. The collodion wet plate process was invented in 1851/52 and required processing close in time to the making of the photograph. In the early days of photography, for example, a mobile travel photographer always had to carry a darkroom tent with him. Daniel Infanger had to carry a bulky and heavy camera for these shots. The long exposure time also requires a photographic flair and a lot of experimentation.
