Hatje Cantz : Kunstakademie Düsseldorf from above - Andreas Gefeller's world from a bird's eye view

Andreas Gefeller (b. 1970) provides us with an unmistakable behind the scenes insight of the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf art academy. It is as if someone just took the lid off and captured it from a bird’s eye view…. The impressive results are combined images from several separate photos, which the photographer realised from a 2 metre height.

The artist scans surfaces from a moderate height, digitally combining up to 2,500 single shots into a single monumental image. He applies this technique to photograph car parks and golf courses, lawns and even the occasional chicken ranch.

Hatje Cantz present "Photographs", their second publication of the photographer’s work. "Supervisions" was published in 2005 and can still be ordered: ISBN 978-3-7757-1592-8. The collector’s edition is already sold out.
