Reviews - What do customers think about Arnold Odermatt: Meine Welt?

A Nice Slice of Odermatt's Work  May 22, 2008
I was introduced to Arnold Odermatt's work at the Chicago Art Institute, some years ago. I found his photographs evocative, often amusing, and sometimes haunting. His use of black and white photography with the often spectacular backdrop of the Swiss countryside, never grow tiring. Each photograph tells a story. Odermatt has obviously taken care year after year in the setup, use of lighting and selection of angle of his pictures. His story notes that his fellow police officers often complained about the length of time he would take setting up for each photo.

This book not only includes a number of car crashes, but also interesting looks at often mundane police work. Odermatt seems to have a knack of turning everyday events into fascinating visual commentary. For me, this is not only art, but also as a nice historical document. A slice of the visual history of life in the Swiss Alps following the Second World War, leading up to the time when the modern highways worked their way through these remote Swiss ski towns.

Having seen a number of Odermatt's other photos, I wish this volume would include more of them. I've found so many of them thought provoking. That being said, if you have the money (these books always seem to be expensive) and the interest in Odermatt's work, I highly recommend this book.
