Poetic found pieces: Claudio Moser’s unusual photographs

The atmospherically dense photographs of industrial wasteland and non-places by Claudio Moser (*1959 in Aarau, Switzerland) are taken during his long walks along the peripheries of cities and other population centers. The artist wanders for hours, sometimes to the point of exhaustion, hoping, as he says, to be in the right place at the right time. After exposing and developing his rolls of film, Moser often lets years pass before viewing the images, allowing an inner distance to develop in order to better evaluate them, intellectually and artistically. It is only then that he produces large inkjet prints of his best works, which are dated from the time they are printed. Instead of taking the names of the cities where the photographs were shot, Moser gives titles to his pictures that make reference to the names of fields in the district, leading to beautifully poetic superimpositions: Dreirosen (Three Roses), Brausebad (Shower Bath), or Gay Head.
