Swiss writer and photographer Annemarie Schwarzenbach, who lived between 1908 and 1942, lead a life unlike any other. Her tomboyish appearance and androgynous style was ahead of its time, while her brave attitude and fearlessness lead her to explore and photograph many countries including Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Russia, Czechoslovakia and more.
As well as her incredible written and photographic work, Annemarie was famous for her rebellious attitude which included dressing as neither female or male from a young age. With short side-parted hair, she was often mistaken for a young man. Her style signatures included high-waisted tailored trousers and a simple shirt. Annemarie died aged just 34 after falling from her bicycle while in Switzerland.
