Landscapes at Edition Gerd Hatje are more than traditional landscape photography. The images always also tell a story, and they invite us to imagine new worlds and to question ordinary perceptions.

In recent years, Dan Holdsworth has worked with academic geologists to map the exact contours of Alpine glaciers and rock formations, using drones, lasers, photography, and high-end software. We encounter millions of points in space, each millimeter-perfect, plotting the outline of a changing landscape. The series Continuous Topography creates an image of what Holdsworth calls a “future archaeology”, in which our own temporal horizons are highlighted. The works, entirely new kinds of landscape imagery, invite us to imaginatively inhabit what initially appears to be an almost entirely abstract and immaterial, or virtual space.

Hans-Christian Schink employs an effect called “real solarization” in his series 1 h: negative film can only be exposed to a certain point, for if one tries to continue the exposure later, the photochemical process is reversed and the darkest points in the negative become light again. This edition features a particularly remarkable impression of the seashore around Auckland, New Zealand; in this image, the sun looks like a series of streaks and dots in the sky, as if the sun had been arrested in its tracks, stopping time as well.

The companion publication is sold out and only available as part of the edition.

Sze Tsung Leong's impressive photographs of historical cities or modern metropolises, barren deserts or lush landscapes, the line of the horizon is always positioned on the same level. Through the line, he illuminates our ordinary perceptions of proximity and distance, familiar and foreign, in a way that is as quiet as it is consequential. The diptych presented features photographs of the capitals of Jordan and Ecuador, Amman and Quito.

In Raumaneignungen (Appropriating space) – Lech 2015/16, Walter Niedermayr dissects the Alpine region around Lech am Arlberg, while at the same time posing questions about the treatment of nature and landscape. For the Edition Gerd Hatje, the artist selected a pair of images, which together appear to form a wintry mountain panorama: Lech Monzabonalpe. It’s an overview of a snowy landscape that nearly dissolves in the diffuse light and the neutralizing white of the high Alps. Alone the person skiing here is a concrete intervention in the minimalist, abstract scenery. At the same time, through its special proportions and the camera’s elevated standpoint, the work demonstrates its significance with respect to a sublime sort of nature.

The renowned Swiss advertising photographer Peter Hebeisen spent ten years working on a series of the major European battlefields of the 20th century. A contemporary form of “coming to terms with the past”, his works do not present us with horrors, suffering, or death. Instead, drawing on the tradition of landscape painting, he shows us sites steeped in history, Verdun, Guernica, Sarajevo, Stalingrad, and others, which are today peaceful places. Hebeisen’s profile of these European Battlefields confronts us with the memory of the shattering events that unfolded at these sites of war and commemorates the historical experience they inherently contain.

After his breathtaking, prize-winning photographs of the coast of Greenland in Broken Line, Olaf Otto Becker turns his attention to the interior of the island in his new series, Above Zero. His photographic studies reveal the overwhelming beauty of this ice-covered landscape, while at the same time documenting the existential threat to it. The grand motif for Edition Gerd Hatje is the fork of a nameless river full of snow melt, somewhere on the island’s ice sheet, 907 meters above sea level. No one knows if the two turquoise-colored strands will reunite somewhere in the distance, or if they will always remain separate and ultimately flow to entirely different parts of the Atlantic, far away from each other.

With his thoroughly meditative photography marked by a sense of quiet and spirituality, the Korean artist Bae, Bien-U is one of the leading contemporary photographers in his country. His photographs of the pine forests and royal shrine of the Shilla dynasty in Gyeongju have also secured him an outstanding position on the international photography scene. His series, Windscapes, is devoted to landscapes in motion. The Korean word for “landscape” (which is also the same in China and Japan) is made up of the characters for “wind” and “scene.” It is closely tied to the traditional, cosmological notion of the ether, a quintessence that permeates all living things.

A great sense of calm radiates from the photographs in Michael Lange’s series Fluss (river). Taken with a large-format camera along the Upper Rhine in Baden-Württemberg and Rheinland-Pfalz between 2012 and 2014, “they tell,” says the photographer, “of the longing for stillness and beauty, of the desire to lose oneself.” The delicately nuanced and composed color photographs are of isolated places shrouded in fog, or of mysterious reflections traversing watery surfaces.
