Robert F. Hammerstiel's "Landmarks", C-Prints on acrylic paper (2009)
Born in 1957 in Pottschach, Austria Robert F. Hammerstiel lives and works in Vienna.
"This photo series shows landscapes in "Second Life" that have a strong association with real landscapes. These are so-called "picture-book landscapes", constructed from collective notions of idyll. On the top left edge of each image there is the place name of the location shown with the corresponding geographical coordinates. The names are usually heavily emotionally charged." (Robert F. Hammerstiel)
