Exhibition until 3 November 2013 (Attention: Closed at 24 and 25 Sept.)




LhGWR is proud to present the exhibition On the Edge, photographs from Higley and Haboob, 2004-2012 by the American photographer Andrew Phelps. For the first time the work of the impressive series Higley and Haboob come together in one exhibition. A double portrait of an exemplary community in the United States, where wealth and prosperity were followed by the collapse of the housing market.
In Higley, globalization is scaled to a micro-cosmos; a farming community on the outskirts of Phoenix. It deals with the tipping point where the past is overtaken by a propelling capitalism. The series is punctuated with nostalgic musings and romantic notes that emerge imperceptibly from Phelps’ personal past. Yet you do not read the series as an indictment, you experience more of a resignation to the fact that time brings change. Then, in Haboob, we are faced with the downside of prosperity.

Phelps works as a curator and board member of the Galerie Fotohof in Salzburg. In recent years his works have been presented at renowned galleries like Robert Morat Galerie (Hamburg), Galerie Brunnhofer (Linz) and Galerie Jo van de Loo (München)

Review: Was einem Heimat war

Photographs of war are much sought-after because they attract attention – drama, death and horror are reliable eye-catchers. A counter-strategy is pursued in the latest book by Peter Granser: “What We Once Called Home” (Verlag Bücher & Hefte, €28). It shows us a town that has been literally pulverized by armies, tanks, artillery and shells: Gruorn on the Swabian Alb. Its inhabitants were forced to abandon their homes when their village was incorporated into the Münsigen military training area in 1937–39.
What Peter Granser found here was therefore mostly a complete void. He makes what is absent into an important part of his visual language in photographs that bear a haunting resemblance to the earliest war photographs of all: Roger Fenton’s deserted landscapes captured during the Crimean War in 1855. Echoes of the American New Topographics movement in the 1960s are also apparent, when for example Granser composes black-and-white views of the barren hills of the Swabian Alb. He juxtaposes these images with sober studio shots of the ammunition used in Münsigen – a plethora of elegant-looking, deadly missiles before pristine white backgrounds. This chilling series is lent an emotional charge by the heart-rending, but futile, letter the Mayor of Gruorn wrote in 1937 lamenting the imminent extinction of his town. Peter Granser conjures from these elements a meditative study of transience and violence – a silent memorial in pictures.

Arles 2012: Hypermarket is the place.

I am really proud to participate to this collective exhibition “Digital Heritage” at the Last Hypermarket in Arles.

What is this exhibition about ?

“[…]not the digital works as a central subject but rather as a practice assimilated by many authors using photography[…]

which is definitely the way it should be!


Some pictures from my “Elements” series will be displayed there.


Conferences schedule :


Exhibition: Behind The Facade, Fotografisk Center, Copenhagen – June 7 through August 12, 2012


Work from my new project THE GARDEN (2012) is included in a group exhibition at Fotografisk Center in Copenhagen, Denmark.


The Garden is a series of photographs shot in Tivoli Gardens – an old amusement park in the middle of Copenhagen. Here people of all different nationalities and ethnicities meet in a world of fantasy. An imaginary Orient, where lights, colors, fake palaces and minarets are the backdrop of the place. It’s a surreal world, yet it mirrors the dreams and fears of life outside the entrance.

Monuments solo show at 4RT contemporary, Bruxells. June 20 – July 21.


If you are in the area on the 20th, let’s meet there. The opening is on the 20th of June at 6pm.

Show at OstLicht, Vienna; 5.6. – 29.9.2012

Hier woont mijn huis / This is where my house lives

Five variations on living and madness The Dr. Guislain Museum uses its own special architecture as a source of inspiration for the presentation of five variations on the theme ‘living and madness’. How do people treat psychiatric architectural heritage? And how has ‘living and madness’ inspired artists and outsiders?

Single presentations of work by Christopher Payne, Eddo Hartmann, Robert Garcet/Juul Sadée/Ralph Noort and Peter Granser.

Opening September 17th, 7pm–11pm, with an introduction by Dr. Tobias Wall

Granser’s new photographs and videos from a psychiatric hospital make do without any freak-show thrills or horror scenarios. They unfold their intensity through the photographer’s reserved gaze and intimate familiarity with his subject. These are compositions made up of nuances, of suggestions and presentiments, images that do not show the grimacing mask of insanity, bur rather its human countenance. It is an eerily familiar face. We know it from the mirror and sense that the way there can be short, shorter than we think. From normality to madness. (Tobias Wall)

‘Arbeit / Labour’ (including ‘Sun City’)
11 09 2010 – 22 05 2011

Up until a few years ago, certain work positions were considered “secure.” Today, with an increasingly profit-orientated mentality and prescribed flexibility, all work models are up for discussion. Positions will no longer be occupied for life. Instead, one will string together a series of professional stations and sites nomadically; full-time work that structures one’s life will be increasingly put into question. Photography has long borne witness to the conditions under which people work. Through factory photographers, for example, who captured the inner workings of a company from the perspective of the client, the management, or, on the other side, “independent” photographers who documented the particularities of sites of production and trade from their own personal external view. The exhibition Arbeit / Labour creates a dialogue between historical documentary photographs and artworks by contemporary photographers. This juxtaposition shows the progressive shift from physical labor to automated activity and to services in which human beings simply maintain control and management functions. With photographs from the archives of “Von Roll,” “Maag,” “Haldengut,” “SLM,” and “Volkart,” and with works by Richard Avedon, Lewis Baltz, Joachim Brohm, Nicolas Faure, Andreas Gursky, Lee Friedlander, Hans Hansen, Sanna Kannisto, Sebastião Salgado, Joel Sternfeld, Jakob Tuggener, Bertien van Manen, and others.

Marks of Honour – A Striking Library is a homage to the photo book. The exhibition shows the inspiration a new generation of relevant photographers has had from the history of photography in the form of books. The photo book is a source for artistic inspiration and creative reference, especially since Robert Frank published his Les Américains in 1958. Photography in books has not only influenced collectors and curators, but also generations of photographers.

Granser’s new photographs and videos from a psychiatric hospital make do without any freak-show thrills or horror scenarios. They unfold their intensity through the photographer’s reserved gaze and intimate familiarity with his subject. These are compositions made up of nuances, of suggestions and presentiments, images that do not show the grimacing mask of insanity, bur rather its human countenance. It is an eerily familiar face. We know it from the mirror and sense that the way there can be short, shorter than we think. From normality to madness. (Tobias Wall)
