Amazonas

Lewis Baltz’ project Amazonas (1995) is one of the first series of colour photogravures ever created in BORCH Editions’ Copenhagen printmaking studio. The work is atypical for the artist, who is most famous for minimalist black-and-white photographs depicting the “terrain vague” where civilisation ends and nature begins. Since the early 1990s, Baltz has been using colour in his works to fathom the influence of technology on the medium of photography. The coloured photogravures of the Amazonas-series are scaled extracts of a film that he took while he was artist in residence on a cruise ship on a touristic journey in the Amazonas region.
