  • Catalogue Essay

    Axel Hütte is the covert Romantic and “landscape painter” among today’s premier-league photographers known as the Düsseldorf School. As an explorer would, Hütte traveled to Alaska, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Australia, South Africa, Brazil, Germany, America, Kauai and Maui in the past eight years in search for the perfect picture. Armed with patience and a traditional large-format camera, he has waited until weather, season, light and allover conditions were just right at the same time. All these landscapes have a distant and unreal quality. Be it the glaciers with their magical blue gleam or the lush green opulence of sub-tropical jungles, all images are seductively beautiful and equally complicated.
