Eight years after being initiated, the project Portrait of a Landscape gives way to a publication. Portrait of a Landscape, Swiss attempt aims to reinvent the way of transposing a complex installation into an editorial form.
The visual experience of the 2700 km of crossings and video shots in Switzerland now takes the form of a thick volume. Throughout the book, an optical recognition application for smartphones brings more than a thousand images to life and gives the reader access to original videos and unexpected stories. The book and the exhibition thus come together in an innovative way.
Raphaël Brunner, Anne-Françoise Lesuisse and Urs Stahel bring their reading on this multifaceted work.
The book will be launched in Zwitserland, during the Vevey Images Festival on September 11th.
