When I was a young boy and devoured Outside Magazine for its stories of adventure
I never would have thought that the first photograph I ever made, as an 11 year old,
may someday be published there. But behold, Cubic Feet/Sec. made it.

Thanks to Katharina Precht, Nicole Jenichl and Philipp Kneissl for the studio visit and video interview. In german, which still sounds funny coming out of my mouth, but a nice view into my world at the moment, and back 34 years as well.

Until January 26th there is a very early series of photographs of mine which can be seen in the show Die Kartografie des Bildes.
In 1994 (yes, 20 years ago..) I paddled a sea-kayak the length of Baja California in the Sea of Cortez with 3 good friends. The series SEXTANT is a documentation of that trip and what it was like to be staring at a horizon line of water and air for 2 months, killing fish, baking bread in the sand, sleeping on the ground.
Also in the show are works from Hubert Blanz,Kurt Matt, Michaela Moscouw, Michael Schuster, Herman Clemens Kosel.

Opening on Saturday, October 19 is the show Archeologie!? in the Salzburg Museum where I am showing a series of 18 portraits of contemporary archeologists at work titled ON SITE. As was the intention, you may be surprised at how interesting, yet unromantic, the world of contemporary archeology really is…

This week’s pick is Higley, chosen by one of the newest Photo-Eye staff members, Ben Lerman.
“Prior to working here I got my BFA in photography at The California College of Arts and Crafts where I studied under LARRY SULTAN, TODD HIDO, Chris Johnson and Magnum photographer JIM GOLDBERG, amongst others. After about a month of being at photo-eye I have chosen Higley, the fifth publication by Andrew Phelps, as my first staff pick.
Under the pretense that ‘Globalization is too big to take a picture of,’ photographer Andrew Phelps returns to his hometown, Higley, where he finds it to be a microcosmic example of the global phenomenon. Higley is a metaphor for what is happening on the edge of every major city in the American west, farming towns being assimilated by their metropolitan neighbors. In this book Phelps has been able to not only examine a city rushing to lose a history that scarcely existed, but also to confront his family’s roots, a narrative that mimics the transformation of the town itself. Photographed over three years, this body of 81 color images culminated at the same time Higley lost its name in an amalgamation with Phoenix, Arizona.”
