Weisse Inseln der Zeit - von Freddy Langer

"Ein Gebäude ist schöner als das andere. Verzaubernd, romantisch und einladend, wie sie da in bunten Tönen inmitten einer klirrenden Kälte Behaglichkeit ausstrahlen – dabei im nüchternsten Dokumentarstil zum Bild gefroren. Manchmal greifen im Hintergrund Bäume mit ihren krakeligen Ästen ins Nichts. Oft aber schweben die Häuser einfach wie im luftleeren Raum. Ein wunderbares Buch."

White islands of time - by Freddy Langer

"One building is more beautiful than the other. Enchanting, romantic and inviting, how they radiate comfort there in colorful tones in the midst of a bone-chilling cold - at the same time frozen into the image in the most sober documentary style. Sometimes trees with their scraggly branches reach into nothingness in the background. Often, however, the houses simply float as if in a vacuum. A wonderful book."

"Auf vielen Reisen durch seine Wahlheimat ist Patrick Lambertz immer wieder Häusern begegnet, die sich dem typischen Klischee des Schweizer Chalets entziehen. Es sind in die Jahre gekommene Häuser, die von der seit Jahrzehnten grassierenden Bau- und Renovierungswut gerade noch verschont geblieben sind. Indem er sie vor winterlichem Hintergrund fotografiert, abstrahiert er die Häuser, hebt ihren individuellen Charakter hervor und bewahrt die erinnerungswürdigen Chalets vor dem Vergessen."

Book Launch "Chalets of Switzerland"

The chalet, a luxurious and romantic remote mountain hut that exists in “splendid isolation” in a sunny winter landscape — this is one of the most popular cliché images of Switzerland. However, the actual meaning of the term “chalet”, derived from the Latin word cala: “protected place”, is simply that of an Alpine dairy hut oder shelter.
On his many trips through his adopted home, Patrick Lambertz has run into many houses that do not conform to the chliché of the Swiss chalet. They are old houses that barely managed to escape the building and renovation boom that has plagued the country for decades. By photographing them in front of a wintery backdrop he abstracts these houses from their context, heightens their individual character, and provides them with an aura of poetry and irony. Following the tradition of Karl Blossfeldt and Bernd and Hilla Becher, Lambertz creates a typological canon of forgotten, yet memorable Swiss houses. Nature itself provides the photo studio: cloudy skies and dense fog provide soft light with little contrast. Snow covered mountains and hills deliver the neutral backdrop.
SYB, the legendary photobook designer from The Hague and master of the “Dutch altar fold”, developed a congenial minimalist concept for the book of Patrick Lambertz’s photographs from the Swiss mountains. The houses are made to steadily appear and disappear from the wintery paper white.

"Durch das leicht durchscheinende Papier tauchen die Häuser beim Durchblättern allmählich aus weissen 'Nebelseiten' auf und wieder ab. Es passt, denn der Schnee und das Weiss sind auch wichtige Elemente in Lambertz' Bildern"

ATLAS OF PLACES 
by Thomas Paturet

Link

Atlas of Places is a public educational collection of Academia, Architecture, Cartography, Cinema, Essays, Painting, Photography and Research. Its objective is to question the meaning of places. It is curated according to continuously evolving philosophical, social and cultural beliefs. This is merely an occasional collection. Some works date from 1230, some from the recent past, some from the present. They have this characteristic in common that they are outlooks, in the truest sense of the word. In them will be found little more than the intention of clarifying a few ideas that might really be called political if that fine word, so attractive and exciting to the mind, did not arouse today so many great scruples and great repugnance.

Atlas of Places is an excellent collection curated by Thomas Paturet and definitely worth a visit.

Comments:

"These chalets do point to a simpler and humbler way of living, set apart from the modern urban lifestyle that most Swiss people live. It makes me think of the quest for more authentic living in natural settings, as described by J.J. Rousseau. Please Swiss Info, give us more pictures of chalets throughout Switzerland. They are a gentle reminder to me to live authentically."
