Walter Niedermayr

MOMENTARY RESORTS

Whether it is the Swiss Alps or the Japanese mountains, the mountain landscapes photographed by Walter Niedermayr invariably look imposing and impressive. Humans appear only as tourists, and always as nonentities. The colourful ski suits and Japanese winter uniforms are at the most insignificant, graphic specks on the white mountain tops. "Momentary Resorts" is a work in progress, on which Niedermayr has been working some years now. In it he not only shows the immense beauty of the mountain landscape, but also the defacement, pollution and erosion that result from human presence. His panoramas, assembled from multiple photographs, show small displacements and changes in perspective, which symbolise the scars on this vulnerable landscape.
