Poste mon amour

The post office – for those who live in Switzerland a treasured and ubiquitous feature of daily life – has developed in the cities into a complex service center, while in the country it has often become superfluous as a result of the changing economy and communication behaviour.

We are taking leave of many rural post offices as a characteristic form of Swiss service, but also of a typical testimony to our everyday aesthetics. Unpretentious and tidy are Jean-Luc Cramatte's photographs of numerous post offices, taken after the counters have closed – the mail has been sent or arrived.
