Publisher's Description
This is the new and revised edition of Arnold Odermatt's acclaimed book, first published in 2003. With thoroughness and meticulous attention to detail, Swiss police officer Arnold Odermatt photographed automobile accidents on the streets of the Swiss Canton Nidwalden, documenting accident scenes and property damage during his 40-year career. In his photos the drivers have gone and the victims have been removed. All that's left are the wrecked cars that tell the stories of excessive speed, drunk driving, right-of-way errors and plain foolishness. The de-formed steel takes on a malleable quality. The cars become sculptures that show the sudden end to many hopes and dreams, the intrusion of the unforeseen into well-regulated daily life. What results from the picture-taking policeman's official work is a selection of melancholic, sometimes funny and always strange atmospheric photos of our mobile society.
