Die schönste Landschaft der Welt

Photographer Lois Lammerhuber has followed with his camera for several years the same route of only 56 kilometers again and again, which winds along "the ridge" of the northernmost rim of the Alps between Kürnberg and Sonntagberg, located in Lower Austria in the region named  Mostviertel. His fantastic images show pure visual poetry with the seasons as attractions:  an infinite landscape park before the first ‚Heumahd’, a geometric pattern in winter and during the bloom of 200 000 trees pure magic.

This magic world of soft, green hills, blooming trees and farms looking like castles is accompanied by a poetic text by Evelyn Schlag, who got already numerous awards for her literary work.



Evelyn Schlag

writes poetry, prose and essays. Her work has earned her numerous awards, lately the Österreichischer Kunstpreis für Literatur 2015 and the Hay Festival Medal for Poetry 2018. She entertains highly emphatic relations with the world she describes and gives her words fairly free rein. This results in a recklessness in her language that surprises and seduces the reader.

Lois Lammerhuber

His pictures have been published in hundreds of books and magazines and earned him international awards, including three times the Graphis Photo Awards for the world’s best photo report of the year. He joined the Art Directors Club New York in 1994. In 1996 he set up Edition Lammerhuber publishing house. In 2014 he received the Republic of Austria’s Cross of Honour, First Class, for Science and Art, followed in 2017 by the Golden Medal of Honour for Services to the City of Vienna, the Prize for Special Merit for Representative and Media Art by the City of Baden and the Grand Medal of Honour for Services to the Province of Lower Austria.
