A fascinating visual journey back to the time of the emergence of this majestic mountain range situated in the heart of Europe - since its formation till the time of today's climate change. Large-size aerial photographs show the famous Alpine mountain peaks, secluded valleys, rugged cliff sides, lacerated rocky plateaus, shimmering mountain lakes and the vanishing ice of the glaciers. The images were shot in Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Slovenia, France and Germany.
The photo exhibition presents the astonishing spectrum of natural colours which the Earth's surface provides. The range stretches from blue and green, yellow, orange, red and violett to brown, grey, black and white - with all imaginable stages in-between.
WATER is the title of the planned exhibition. It shows water fluid, frozen to ice and gaseos in clouds, as a destructive, transporting and even constructive power, and how it reacts to the climate change.
" .... Edmaier’s work reveals the diverse colours, forms and structures of the Earth photographed from the air at the height of 50 – 4,000 metres. However, this is just a part of his photographic style, more than that, he continues the stylistic tradition of New Objectivity by incorporating the notion of scientific and thematic correlation in his texts and images, similarly to Albert Renger-Patzsch. In this way, the functional principles of our planet are translated into aesthetically perfect images."
Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie (German Society for Photography)
„Bernhard Edmaier raises the art of aerial photography to new hights. His images are hauntingly impressionistic, even as they display a clarity of tone and texture that recalls the sharp-focus realism of Eliot Porter ... “
Natural History Magazine, USA
"… he discovers the earth in a new way, for himself and for us. …the pictures are amazing, pictures we’ve never seen before. Pictures that tell us in a special way of the power of nature and of the transience of time… Edmaier’s pictures are hyper-concrete and at the same time enchantingly abstract. They are like a hymn to the beauty of nature….like a song announcing the magnificence of our planet."
