Full Description

Dreamscapes is a long-term artistic project of Swiss photographer Dominic Büttner, in which he is recording actual performances at night, both in natural and built environments. Bearing a torch, he slowly walks away from his large format view camera. Time exposure captures the scenery illuminated by the moving light, and sometimes his footprints, while the artist’s figure is eradicated again from the image. At the same time familiar and strange, the fascinating pictures of enchanted or haunted landscapes tell us what an eerie place our everyday surroundings can be, depending on the light in which we see it. This first monographic book on Dominic Büttner’s art features some one-hundred of his Dreamscapes alongside essays by literary scholar and critic Elisabeth Bronfen and by publicist and art critic Nadine Olonetzky. Text in English and German.
