As part of the INN SITU series, photographers deal with the Tyrol/Vorarlberg region.
The Italian artist Andrea Botto has been continuously working with the photography of explosions since 2008.
His work offers a kind of culmination point in which a number of photography's central functions and capabilities are concentrated: We consider landscape photography, a classic subject of the medium. His works show photographic technology at the heart of its purpose, capturing an unrepeatable moment that transcends our own physical ability to perceive.
And of course these images are also documentations, visual records of historical events that a community of people wants to remember for generations.
On closer inspection of the pictures, however, it immediately becomes clear that no distanced eyewitness is acting here. The landscape becomes both a photographic studio and a staged model, and his work a reflection of processes of change and dissolution. The book contains an extensive selection of outstanding existing works as well as new ones he photographed in the Tyrol/Vorarlberg region as part of the INN SITU series.
