Guideo Baselgia, Silberschicht

Front Cover
Hatje Cantz, 2008 - Photography - 104 pages
In the mid-1990s, Swiss photographer Guido Baselgia, who was born in 1953, set out with his camera to explore the Engadin valley, where he grew up. He discovered a primitive highland region in which nature developed unhindered. He went on to visit the plains of northern Finland and Norway, where, between the Arctic Circle and the Barents Sea, he found undisturbed wastelands. During his recent travels to the Bolivian Altiplano and to the Atacama Desert in Chile, Baselgia took a deeper delve into extreme landscape. Light is the dominant theme in Silberschict, a collection which, alongside previous publications Hochland and Weltraum, forms the final section of a breathtaking trilogy. The themes that formed the basis of Guido Baselgia's work 10 years ago are explored with new depth in this masterful work.
