Since his 2009 solo exhibition Local Studies at Fotostiftung Schweiz, Swiss Joël Tettamanti has gradually built up his reputation as a photographer. Assignments for international magazines and global company groups take him to known and unknown places all over the world, which he more or less coincidentally approaches as an artist. In his oeuvre, Tettamanti focuses on places that give each location its specific identity. Moving from unspoiled countryside across the borders between nature and civilisation to the centres of agglomeration, he explores the details where seemingly rationally constructed civilisation encounters natural forms. The places Tettamanti reveals in his photographs seem somehow surreal; they show just how absurd man-made structures can appear. "Works 2001–2019" also appears as a special edition, reviving the photo book as a medium in times of digitalisation. It is a professionally and conventionally published book combined with print-on-demand production. The artist offers various types of special editions, thus enabling customers to participate in the design process by selecting photos for their own edition. Special editions are available from our publishing company.
