Press comments

  • „The print of time on the skin of the earth. Splendid.“

    GEO Paris, Frankreich

  • „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

  • " .... 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."
