Walter Niedermayr: The Aspen Series
by Paula Crown
Publisher's Description
Italian photographer Walter Niedermayr (born 1952) has been documenting alpine landscapes since the late 1980s, calling attention to their fragility and exploring the issues surrounding the presence of tourism in these delicate microclimates. In 2009, Niedermayr was invited to Aspen, Colorado to undertake the project documented in this volume. The Aspen Series consists of a group of 42 photographs, digital murals, banners and a video work depicting the winter landscape of the Rocky Mountains from various vantage points and aerial locations. The works are on display at various locations in the resort through April of 2012. In this volume, Niedermayr remains a precise, critical observer of the ways in which landscape is transformed by the tourism industry while also celebrating the enduring majesty of the region, revealing “the world of these mountains from the point of view of the mountains themselves.”
