Synopsis: This selection of 40 medium-format color photographs by Walter Niedermayr transports us into the world of perpetual ice--to Mount Titlis, the glacier which rises proudly above the boundaries of space and time, 3,000 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--once the paradigm of an aesthetics of the sublime--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 cliches and bold idealizations of nature to such a great extent that subjective perception and feelings become mere platitudes. If Jean Baudrillard were a tourist in the Alps with a knack for taking pictures, these are the images he would make.

Book Description Ostfildern-Ruit: Hatje Cantz, 2004. Book Condition: Sehr gut. 95 S. Ein gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - Walter Niedermayr (geb. 1952) hat Menschen im schweizerischen Wintersportort Titlis aufgenommen und sie digital ausgeschnitten und augenfällig neu gruppiert. In dem 'white space' der Schneelandschaft wird so nach der Grenze der Abbildung gefragt und erneut ausdrücklich auf die Künstlichkeit, die Gemachtheit der Fotografie - die ja angeblich ein 'objektives' bildgebendes Verfahren ist - verwiesen. ISBN 9783775714051 Wir versenden am Tag der Bestellung von Montag bis Freitag. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1550 Mit zahlr. Abb. Fadengehefteter Originalpappband. Bookseller Inventory # 974712

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
