Press and Federal Palace photographer Walter Rutishauser, born 1940, was deeply interested in the events that took place in the Federal Palace. He took portraits of Federal Councillors and members of the National Council and Council of States; he captured politicians engrossed in debate and took part in press conferences and public events.

The BiG’s Rutishauser portrait collection spans over 6,000 digitized photographs. The collection can be accessed online via our library catalogue.
