| Shifting perspective from the Alps to the Rocky Mountains

Walter Niedermayr (*1952) has worked in alpine regions around the world since the late eighties, using his camera to explore the issues surrounding the presence and interference of people in these sensitive landscapes. In winter 2009 he was invited to Aspen, Colorado, where he created another of his Alpine Landscapes. In forty-two multipart photo and video works, the artist depicts the winter landscape of the ski resort in the Rocky Mountains. The work is marked by the beautiful illusion of the ski resort Aspen and the wintry mountain world surrounding it. Yet at the same time the visual sequences reflect upon their own reality, which the artist reveals through the medium of photography. For one, they feature snowy landscapes, recreation centers, and sophisticated, tourist-oriented urban spaces, while touching upon the limitations of the representational. This publication falls in alongside works inspired by the vision of the architectural team Sanaa as well as the series devoted to Iran (Recollection).
