Michael Blaser – Mittelland

Photographer Michael Blaser embarks on an uninspiring journey through the small towns and villages of his native Switzerland, places marked by their mundane architecture and overall sameness in character. Across the hilly landscape of the densely populated Swiss Plateau, the colours are always muted and the skies always seem to be grey. The same types of houses and flats crop up, with the same stucco facades and identical flower plantings and garden sheds. Blaser painstakingly records this monotonous landscape through numerous photographs, presenting something quite apart from the idyllic quiet house in a small town we might imagine and equally as boring.
