    Leon Kirchlechner: Nowhere

Der Greif move into the world of books with Leon Kirchlechner's Nowhere

Posted by James Cartwright,

German Photography paper Der Greif has generated a hard-won reputation for itself over the course of only six issues. Within its pages sit an impressive range of photographers, from the established to the up-and-coming, who all produce exceptional work. But producing a newspaper was never Der Greif’s sole intention and they’ve recently realised the next stage of their ambitious plans and moved into the world of book publishing.

Their first ever monograph is a hard-bound photo book showcasing the work of long-time collaborator (he’s been in four issues of the mag now) Leon Kirchlechner. Nowhere comprises a rich selection of Leon’s ambiguous landscapes – barren stretches of land that could belong almost anywhere on earth. They’re a haunting and unsettling group of images, fragments of larger narratives to which the viewer will always be ignorant.
