Sites & Signs by Georg Aerni
Artist and photographer Georg Aerni, born in 1959, is known for his photo series of major cities and landscapes. Whether Paris, Tokyo, or Mumbai, glaciers in the Alps, or cages at the zoo, he is interested in the signs that reveal the constant transformation of these vastly different environments. The monograph Sites & Signs (Scheidegger & Spiess, ISBN 978-3-85881-320-6, €95) offers the first extensive presentation of Georg Aerni’s precise, subtly colored photographs. With essays by Stephan Berg, Moritz Küng, and Nadine Olonetzky, and a complete catalogue raisonné. The lovely book has been awarded the German Photobook Prize 2012 in Silver.
