Hunting Stands, 2002, series of 3 panoramic photographs, analog C-Prints, each 90 x 210 cm, edition of 5.
These hunting stand were built by hunters in Italy. The hunters change the environment with their stands by getting rid of the brushwood. They create an unobstructed field of view as well as a fire line of their prey. They use the material as a protection against the perception of the animals. Simultaneously, the hunting stands assimilate with the environment through the use of the cuttings. Both, modification and assimilation are in direct interdependence with each other. The hunters as they use the stands define themselves with the way they build these hiding-places. The purpose of the lodges defines the landscape.
