Mlineritsch is searching like a stranger for peculiar, simple and droll things. Last Chance, Plants, Mineral resources, Plastic, Submerged, Circle and Architecture - this are the subjects of his photographic series.

 

The Salzburg-based photographer Reinhart Mlineritsch, born in Vienna in 1950, is looking at nature, at the world around us, with the eyes of a stranger, stumbling over banal, insignificant things, investigating constructive structures in both architecture and landscape. His photographic images are pieces of poetic evidence of a prosaic world. He develops his photographic essay in several chapters, thus approaching, so to speak, a literary form of narration.

 

To accompany this photographic essay, Gerhard Amanshauser has written a short ironic parable about the ancient invention of (a version of) photography that refers to nature as a source of all imagery as well as to vanity that conjures up ways of preserving objects in images.

 

The series of photographs created by Reinhart Mlineritsch between 1992 and 1998 are related to historical photographic documentations of nature by Margit Zuckriegl who provides an outline of their cultural and historical background, ranging from anti-progressiveness to sensual pause.
