Photographs by Lukas Felzmann.
Lars Muller, 2003. 144 pp., 70 black-and-white illustrations, 5x7".
"Flocks of birds have risen and settled throughout time,
just like floods have come and gone, but in a different
rhythm. Each generation is struggling to grasp its connection
to nature within our fragmented lives. We must
find an equilibrium between the ruins of civilization and
the regenerative power of life, so that we can pass without
remorse."—Lukas Felzmann. Landfall is part travel
diary, part meditation, a guidebook to wanderlust.
Felzmann lives and works in the San Francisco Bay area,
traveling throughout the West when the mood strikes,
working with a 5x7" view camera and a keen sense of intuition.
The need to find connection to the
natural world, to the land in which one
lives, is central to his work, and as such,
provides the only structural foundation
to this collection of images. Felzmann
engages, not in preaching to us, but in
pure spiritual quest. Presented with
minimal text (found only at the end),
Landfall reads like a visual novella.
