From above. Spelterini's balloon and the drone.

What does Switzerland look like from above? Eduard Spelterini's balloon photographs answered this question for the first time for a wide audience. Back then, taking photographs from above required a pioneering spirit. Today drones make aerial photography generally accessible. The exhibition in the National Library, in collaboration with swisstopo, invites visitors to change their perspective. swisstopo is represented in the exhibition with historical instruments and selected photos from the photo collection.
