Petra Wittmar by Hubertus von Amelunxen

Book Description

Petra Wittmar was born in the central German village of this book's title in 1955. This photographic inventory of her hometown from 1979 to 1983 analyzes its architecture and topography as a way of disclosing the structures of local life. Wittmar's interest was sparked by drastic changes in the 1970s, which saw parts of the village replaced with increasingly interchangeable, standardized architecture, and by extension perhaps standardized culture and lifestyle. As that new construction and new taste was taking hold, a contrasting yearning for "home" arose, which "Medebach" explores. Wittmar's renunciation of inflammatory moments and her largely formal stringency distinguish these images, which can also be read as a German reaction to the American New Topographics movement of the late 1970s.

Grey Ecology by Hubertus von Amelunxen Grey Ecology, Hardback (April 2009)

Here as Virilio states, all one can do is guess.' But Virilio's position is not one of pure guessery. His extrapolationist position against his delirium state has the architecture of a 23rd-century scientist.--Philip K. Dick.

Towards a Philosophy of Photography by Hubertus von Amelunxen Towards a Philosophy of Photography, Paperback (October 2000)

Shows how the transformation of textual into visual culture (from the linearity of history into the two-dimensionality of magic) and of industrial into post-industrial society (from work into leisure) went hand in hand, and how photography allows us to read and interpret these changes with particular clarity.
