Synopsis : Police officer and photographer Arnold Odermatt became famous in his retirement on the publication of Karambolage, his photographic journal about the traffic accidents that were part of his professional life in the Swiss canton of Nidwalden. The small police force in the Nidwalden communities was worried about who could take over its work because the village youth did not see themselves wearing uniforms and walking the beat. On Duty brings together the photographs which were Odermatt's attempt to disabuse them of their misconceptions. He sent his colleagues to the barber shop and theatrically recreated the adventure in their daily routines. On Duty is a compelling sequence of colourful tableaux and an impressive document and insight to a hidden world.

Synopsis: Arnold Odermatt joined the police force in his native Swiss canton of Nidwalden in 1948, when he was just in his twenties. When he retired more than 40 years later as Vice Commander of the department and Lieutenant Director of Traffic Police, he found sudden, unexpected fame as an artist. His photographs of the vehicle accidents that had been part of his professional life, collected in the book Karambolage, led to international recognition: His work was shown at the 2001 Armory Fair and Venice Biennale, followed by solo exhibitions at The Art Institute of Chicago in 2002 and at the Fotomuseum Winterthur in 2004.
