Cecile Wick. America

Cecile Wick is one of the cornerstones of contemporary Swiss photography. Following her first book, KopfFall, a collection of dreamlike black-and-white pinhole camera images published by Edition Patrick Frey in 1996, America presents digitally enhanced color images of vast, elementary landscapes. While attending the University of California, Davis, she traveled by train across America, photographing the passing panorama from the constant, window-level camera angle. This perspective imparts a beguiling, intense luminosity to the stark views of plains, horizons and mountain ranges, and the sparse reminding traces of civilization.
