Jürgen Nefzger - Hexagone - le paysage fabriqué –the manufactered landscape

“The photographer lives in a society where leisure time is consumed. He walks along its paths in the new habitat of shopping centres, seaside resorts, in open space, amusement parks and in business parks. He sets his view camera in front of the factitious happiness of a private property, in the face of an unveiled or potential collective disaster, always introducing the tension of the bountiful beauty of the landscape and the clear certainty of its deterioration. It doesn’t really matter whether it’s in the Gers, suburban Paris or Marseille, a random ski or seaside resort : it has been recorded not as a denunciation, which can only lead to a rigid, fairly commonplace position, but as a political proclamation of doubt. “

Jean-Marie Baldner, 2006
