Elmar Haardt –Topographies of Transit


A lorry on the edge of the forest, a street leading to nowhere, the remains of a petrol station, a delivery van in an empty car park – the photography of Elmar Haardt (born in 1974) shows scenes which change between aes­thetic beauty and uneasy emptiness. The sight of car parks, supermarkets, residential buildings, streets and houses – taken in the northern states of the United States (Pennsylvania, North and South Dakota, Montana, Washington and Ne­vada) – are in a latent ratio with each other: they pres­ent sublime panoramas whose filled expanse is infiltrated by the bare­ness of the scene and its local vagueness. The photographs of unspec­tacular, nothing other than touching ordinary areas unexpectedly meet the placelessness of planned infrastructure.
