Born in Thun, Switzerland in 1968, Bruno Augsburger studied photography in Zurich (Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst Zürich) and Leipzig (Hochschule für Gestaltung und Buchkunst Leipzig). His landscapes exhibit no signs of human intervention, yet the pictures do not deal with a yearning for unspoiled nature. They came about on scouting trips through the Yukon in northern Canada, in the Iclandic tundra and in the Alps, as pyproducts. Bruno Augsburger's photographic approach also encourages the emergence of unexpected sideshows; their geographical correlations resides in the impassable flecks of this earth. The reduced cool spectrum of colours in the print signifies that the landscapes have never been seen like this before. His pictures stop the gaze drifting off into the distance beyond the horizon. They push the mountain, the sea, the wood into a silent distance. Bruno Augsburger's most recent exhibitions include "Ist das Fischli Weiss?" at Coleman Project Space in London (2006), "Bruno Augsburger Fotografien" at Kunstraum Medici in Solothurn (2007), "White Bloods Steps" at Gallery Römerapotheke in Zürich (2009), "Landschaft im Wandel" at Kunstmuseum Thun (2010), "Slippy Floor" at Pavels Dog Galerie in Berlin (2011), "Grösser als Zürich, Kunst im Aussersihl" at Helmaus Zürich (2012), "Out There" at Galerie Bildhalle in Kilchberg, Zürich (2013). Bruno Augsburger is based in Zürich.
