L'insensé Suisse ouvre ses pages à des photographes contemporains insensés
Après l'Insensé Japan, Pays-Bas, Espagne, États-Unis, Berlin et British, voici le tour de la Suisse d'être encensée par L'Insensé. Comme à son habitude, le magazine est de toute beauté, et à un prix raisonnable et abordable : 20 euros.
