Michael Reisch
by Ulrich Pohlmann
Publisher's Description
The lush and subtly disturbing landscape photographs of Michael Reisch cannot clearly be defined as depicting either reality or simulation. Using a large-format camera, the artist, who was once a student of Bernd Becher's, photographs long green landscapes, industrial complexes and other strangely energized buildings. Then he digitizes his images and manipulates them on the computer-removing all traces of specific place, time or human intervention-until he has created 'invented' areas of the landscape that feel 'more real' than the actual landscape, while the 'real' landscape takes on a simulated tone that can almost call to mind The Lord of the Rings-in a very good way. This monograph is the first to offer a concentrated look at this young Dusseldorf-based artist.
