Walter Niedermayr (*1952 in Bolzano, Italy) is one of the great European photographic artists of our time. His sensitive visual language—which has been copied by countless other photographers in recent years—is marked by its subtle blend of colors. Niedermayr become familiar to a larger public through his series on Alpine landscapes, architecture, and infrastructures. For this project, he traveled between 2005 and 2008 to Teheran, Isfahan, Yazd, Shiraz, and other smaller cities and historical sites in Iran. His excursions led to the creation of a new group of works in which he examines various aspects of contemporary Iranian architecture in their cultural and historical context. The Collector’s Edition is a diptych of an urban landscape that is an astonishing visual example of the country’s orientation on Western architectural traditions—colorful billboards, a beltway, and apartment blocks that look as if they could be located anywhere in the world.
