"Some Scenic Views"—the title of Philipp Lachenmann's first monograph—reflects his work's camouflage strategy. Presenting 80 photographs of unspectacular views, the book reveals the process of hiding complex meaning behind a surface of normalcy. With a series of short texts, Russell Fergusson brings to the fore those hidden facts of historical, political, natural, or scientific nature. He thus reveals Lachenmann's photographs for what they truly are: conceptual artworks. This book inscribes itself in the German artist's body of works as a kind of picture novel rather than a monograph.
