images may be added again at some stage - too many images "stolen" and used uncredited without any notice. Will rethink the whole project - password protected access may be an option, paid subscribing another or taking it completly offline also thinkable. But still undecided...

Hardcover cloth bound with dustjacket, edition of 1500. Text and design by Manfred Willmann, edited by Rainer Iglar and Michael Mauracher.

The “countryside” images are exceptionally colour-intensive. Just as William Eggleston focused on chromatic elements in the 1976 MoMA exhibition, Willmann uses colour as his chosen form of artistic expression. With acute sensitivity, Willmann photographed natural landscapes and human interaction in an abstract-looking rural environment. Although taken with an affectionate eye, the photos do not veil the brutality of natural decay. By using a bright camera flash, even in broad daylight, the artist reveals the unsightly details as well. Close inspection will reveal contextual cross-references and aesthetic interconnections. Rather than a one-dimensional idyll, “Das Land” is a marriage of the familiar and the unfamiliar, of the near and the far, of the living and the dying. In spite of maximum proximity and hyper-real depiction, the nature of the “countryside” remains wholly impenetrable. (artnet.com/Priska Pasquer)
