A Special Thanks to Gerry Hofstetter...

The brilliant artwork on The Huffstutter Family website is used by permission of world renowned light artist Gerry Hofstetter of Zumikon, Zurich, Switzerland.

The pictures include the Chateau de Chillon and the Jungfrau. The Chateau de Chillon is a 1,000 year-old castle and is Switzerland’s most-visited historic landmark. It was made famous in Lord Byron’s "The Prisoner of Chillon." The Jungfrau is one of the most emblematic sites of the Swiss Alps. On the night of January 1, 2012, Gerry projected the Swiss cross on the north face of the Jungfrau. This launched the centenary year of the Jungfrau Railway, Switzerland’s leading mountain railway.

Gerry Hofstetter is an extraordinary illuminator with enormous insight and vision. He transforms buildings, mountains and natural beauty spots into contemporary works of art. Across the globe, he has shown his talent on the grandest scale. He has illuminated famous landmarks such as Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate, the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, the Sphinx and the Great Pyramids at Giza. Among his extraordinary works are natural settings such the Matterhorn in his native Switzerland, the White Cliffs of Dover along the English Channel and the giant icebergs in Antarctica. Hofstetter has lit some of the world’s most beautiful churches, including Mont Saint Michel in France, the San Marco in Venice and Washington’s National Cathedral.
