Item description for Armin Linke: Transient by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Stefano Boeri & Stalker...
This work of Armin Linke is one of modern photography's most startling attempts to fix images of cultural transformations that are taking place on a global scale - images focused both on the actual landscape and on man's place in this new world culture. Organized as both an atlas and "an impossible archive," Transient is a courageous undertaking which creates a new definition for the idea of metamorphosis in a modern world.
Transient is the first glimpse of an idea Linke has pursued for the last decade: a project he calls 4flights, for which he has produced thousands of images. This volume presents the first look at what may be a photographic masterpiece, a significant selection of 200 "local" photographs that taken together are a full 360-degree interpretation of the profound, accelerating alteration our world is undergoing.
The book is designed by Cornell Windly and includes text and dialogues by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Stefano Boeri, Stalker, Amedeo Martegani and Luca Molinari.
