About the Author

Alain Dizerens was born in Geneva in 1948. Feeling restless and with a constant urge to explore the world, he finds a job with a humanitarian organisation and so his adventures begin, often more life threatening than recreational. In his first book ‘On the breadline’ one can discover the autobiographical account of a young man impatient to find his place in this world and escape the endless cohort of the industrialized society, he combines the odd jobs to make a living and saves up just enough to finance his trips abroad. From Switzerland to the Vietnam war, back to Europe and again off to Cameroon, the author describes his personal story of survival through continuous curiosity and courage to face life in most dangerous of places. Throughout his life, Alain Dizerens has also worked in kabbutz (Israel) and in Hing Kong among other places around the world. After a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and several decades of teaching, Alain Dizerens also presented a variety of "crosstalk kinetic" (dance, electro) performances, particularly in the context of the Swiss summer 1986 in Geneva. He has written other books - Miroir-Temps and l’Arpenteur sidéral among many as well as published a number of photo e-books.
