In this book, Reinhart Mlineritsch follows in the tradition of those photographers, who use large format photography to achieve a hyper-real precision, for whom black and white photography offers the possibility of the abstraction and augmentation of things, and who present these results to the viewer using a perfect duotone printing technique. The accompanying text by Anselm Wagner analyzes this work and reveals the methodology of his art photography.
