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

schreibt Lyrik, Prosa und Essays. Für ihr Werk wurde sie mit zahlreichen Preisen ausgezeichnet, zuletzt dem Österreichischen Kunstpreis für Literatur 2015. Sie hat eine heftig empathische Beziehung zu der Welt, die sie beschreibt. Dabei lässt sie die Sprache einfach reden, die Worte also an langen Leinen. Das Ergebnis ist eine Leichtsinnigkeit der Sprache selbst, die überrascht und verführt.
