Mountains, valleys, forests, meadows, scattered hamlets, and farmsteads. Michael Ruetz’s large-format photographs depict changes in seasons and offer wide views of stunning natural landscapes. But his work is more than just a descriptive portrait of natural scenery: Ruetz’s deeper aim is to capture time through image sequences that inspire comparisons and expand the limits of the viewer’s immediate perception. For his Timescape
817 piece, the artist examines the changes in a selected Alpine landscape through a series of repeated shots of the same portion of scenery, taken 2720 times over a period 23 years. Admire his work until 5 October at the Museum of Photography (p. 44).
