Die Liftler

A series of images, following the seasonal workers at ski resorts in Ehrwald and Tux Austria. Part of a photographic research, where I tried to connect the appearance of todays precarious labour to the art historic iconography of a profession, in this case national-romantic paintings from the Alps at the end of the 19th century. Other photo series from this research are Jax Carwash, 2000 and de Tomaateters, 2002.

Series of 16 c-prints
