Book Description Codax, Zurich, 2004. Hard Cover. Book Condition: As New. First Edition. WE SPECIALIZE IN PHOTOGRAPHY BOOKS. From the shelf in our private library. 96 pages with c.44 medium-format colour photos, mainly landscape, some double-page, all by Walter Niedermayr. All images here are not what they seem. Using real shots for an illusory backdrop from the Titlis Glacier in Switzerland, Niedermayr stages a depicted reality of the 'mass culture experience' where, for instance, families are shown with their children apparently waiting to go snow-tubing - unreal, cleverly invented images. Text in German/English by Martin Prinzhorn. Includes list of exhibitions and a Bibliography. Contents Fine in silver boards with small colour plate on cover; no dust jacket as issued. Barely visible, light indentation on cover. Uncommon. Size: Folio- Over 12" Tall. Bookseller Inventory # P25120

Book Description Codax Publisher, Zürich (Zurich), 2004. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Silver paper-covered boards with tipped-in four-color plate on cover; no dust jacket as issued. Photographs by Walter Niedermayr. Text (in German and English) by Martin Prinzhorn. 96 pp., with 40 four-color plates. 13-5/8 x 9-3/4 inches. New in publisher's shrink wrap (slit open for inspection). From the publisher: "This selection of 40 medium-format color photographs by Walter Niedermayr (born 1952) transports us into the world of perpetual ice, to Mount Titlis, the glacier which rises three thousand meters above sea level in the Swiss Alps. Only the human figures in colorful leisure attire which populate this alpine Shangri-la bear witness to the influence of civilization, transforming the alpine landscape into a trivial theme park governed by the laws of consumption. In Titlis, Niedermayr's camera captures the aura of a mountain landscape that is no longer just a mountain landscape but a legend. The alpine setting in which the puppet-like figures of tourists appear are shaped by these clichés and bold idealizations of nature to such a great extent that subjective perception and feelings become mere platitudes.".
