Theorea. Photographs by Axel Hütte. Texts (in German and French) by Urs Stahel and Hans Irrek. Fotomuseum Winterthur in association with Schirmer/Mosel, Munich, 1997. 84 pp. Quarto. SIGNED on half-title page. Glazed paper over boards with matching dust jacket. 36 color reproductions. Library protector.
As new.

The companion to the Hütte's first major retrospective, Theorea is a comprehensive presentation of his unique large-format color landscapes. Along with Andreas Gursky and Thomas Struth, he is one of the most celebrated students of Bernd and Hilla Becher. His images, often presented as diptychs, push the boundaries of straight photography, engaging in enigmatic ways with the history of landscape painting. With disorientingly large skies and a strange sense of scale they are nevertheless very straight forward photographs of mountain tops, parking garages, and snowy roads.

Kontinente. Photographs by Axel Hütte with text by Cees Nooteboom. Schirmer/Mosel, Munich, 2000. 155 pp. Large oblong quarto. SIGNED by Hütte on half-title page. Clothbound in photo-illustrated dust jacket. 34 color reproductions.
As new.

"Renowned for his huge panoramic landscape photographs, Axel Hütte collected his most famous pictures from five continents for this, his fifth book. These powerful images were created under highly different climatic conditions--from steamy and impenetrable jungles to towering mountain ranges. What they share is Hütte's unique vision of the world, one that admits a romantic tinge but is occasionally prey to realism."--the publisher
