About This Book

A collection of previously unreleased photographs by the German artist shot over the past three years, from Venice to the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines. A photographer of the so-called Düsseldorf School, Axel Hutte trained under Bernd Becher with Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff, Candida Hofer, and Andreas Gursky. This volume presents two series of photographs. The first illustrates the author’s journey from Germany to Italy, a sort of retracing of the nineteenth-century Grand Tour: from Alpine passes surrounded by snowy summits to Apennine peaks. The second explores Venice and the interiors of some of its best-known palazzi through color and black-and-white photographs.
