The change in alpine landscape through human activities is a permanent feature of Niedermayr’s artwork. In his work, Walter Niedermayr weakens the ideal of an untouched natural landscape, and brings the effects of winter tourism in focus. Mostly done in polyptychs, his photographic series forbid the usual point of view of a landscape as a panorama and forces the recipient to a new perception. Niedermayr regards his work not merely as a criticism of the handling with landscape. It`s up to the recipients to express their criticism.
