Josef Hoflehner


Josef Hoflehner (1955) lives in Austria but works everywhere: he has long held a fascination with secluded places and empty spaces and since the early 1990’s, he has worked in some of the most remote and forbidding areas of the world; including Antarctica, Vietnam, China, Japan, the Yemen, Iceland, and most recently, the Deep South of the United States.

Quelques mots de Francis Hodgson sur la photographie de Josef Hoflehner:
Un certain type de photographie restitue au paysage ces qualités qui, au XIIIème Siècle, suscitaient un sentiment quasi d’horreur en confrontant la taille infime de l’être humain à la nature et ses terribles pouvoirs. Certes, la photographie est toujours plus ou moins littérale mais ce genre de paysage ne cache pas ses intentions d’être traité comme une métaphore. Josef Hoflehner est en passe de devenir un des plus éminents représentants de ce type.
