Photographers provide a new perspective of the Tyrolean winter

Today, landscape photography is divided into two opposing worldviews: in one, there is always a cloudy sky, and in the other the sun is always brilliantly shining. The gray-on-gray that dominates contemporary fine arts landscape photography is a stark contrast to the exaggerated blues of tourist advertising. Neither of them have any sense of reality that would include the natural beauty of appropriated nature and thus avoid the lie of selective framing. Thus, the prize-winning first volume of Sight-_Seeing was dedicated to developing this kind of picture of the Tyrolean summer landscape. This second book features photographs of winter landscapes by Hans Herbig, Verena Kathrein, Jörg Koopmann, Regina Recht, Sebastian Schels, Richard Walch, and Alexander Ziegler and is a continuation of Wolfgang Scheppe’s project Bildwürdigkeit und Sehenswürdigkeit. Here, not only is a different weather situation depicted, but we also see the omnipresent commercial exploitation of Tyrol for winter sports.
