The photographic sequence "Herr Erwin Brugger" by six black and white photographs and a letter tells about a journey on october 17, 2010 by myself and mr. Erwin Brugger, a man who found on december 25, 1966 in Herisau, Switzerland the dead body of the poet Robert Walser. Erwin Brugger and I look back along the path of the last walk of the swiss poet to reach the exact place where the man found the body of the poet lying in the snow. Erwin Brugger at the time of discovery was a child of 12 years. A letter testifies the correspondence between me and mr. Brugger before we met in Herisau.
