The photo-project “Sight-_Seeing” reveals to the viewers unfamiliar perspectives. It is a chance to meet new to new insights. Seven photographers who work both in an artistic and an applied context, with long experience in travel photography and an affinity for the landscape of the Alps collaborate in this project.
In the collective process with the curator Wolfgang Scheppe a resulting image-atlas of Tyrol explores the tension between the tourism advertising image and the standards of contemporary photographic aesthetic, in order to develop new views.
This experiment was also in the new image campaign in the Tyrol: www.sight-seeing.tirol.at/
