«As a documentary artist and helper of the ethnographer, I learned to identify with the ethnological to be captured, to integrate it into myself.
Observing and recording in place means not only capturing light, shadow and movement, but also merging the heart into the design in recognition.»

Quote from Hans Erni in the book “Zeitzeuge Hans Erni” by Karl Bühlmann, Verlag Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 2009.
