This large set of images is now part of the Hexagone corpus, where it forms the second section, entitled “The Landscape Consumed.” In these images Jürgen Nefzger moves away from the highly urbanised territory and towards places with low population density, even rural ones, showing us the other side of appearances: instead of what comes before the manufactured landscape, we are faced with uncertain images of it, resulting from the general takeover by the consumerist model. The consequences of progress can be read in highly developed, monetised and, finally polluted nature.
