Michael Blaser’s artistic concerns centre on the unspectacular, the trivial, the familiar, and the oftentimes overlooked. Raised in the agglomeration, he examines the peculiarities of the urban periphery. The artist confronts us with a Switzerland of mediocrity that oscillates between urban identity and provincial character, nature and urban sprawl, public and private space. Michael Blaser’s photographs can be considered both landscape and architectural images. The domesticated landscapes with their infrastructures are unadorned mirror images of our society.
