Elger Esser


Contemporary German Photography

Elger Esser is one of my favourite German photographers, in large part because of his large-scale (colour) landscapes. These photographs invite the usual complaints about German photography, but I could not imagine seeing Esser’s landscapes any other way. Needless to say, the image samples on the web do the prints absolutely no justice. Here’s a page with more information (and samples), and hopefully this one is not going to disappear as rapidly as all my earlier links.
