About Roads and Paths (Strassen und Wege)
Pursuing the Bernd and Hilla Becher tradition of photo-typologies -- he was a student of the Bechers --Bernard Fuchs follows his "Autos" monograph with this catalogue of roads and paths. These routes all lead somewhere, perhaps away from civilization, but, as Fuchs makes plain, are certainly civilizing entities themselves, the artificial medium by which nature is found.
"In Bernhard Fuchs Roads and Paths, the vacant roads and byways of a rural region of Austria create lyrical metaphors for various aspects of life’s journey. Fuchs creates a sense of ambiguity at the moment of exposure. Whereas the viewer is not certain if they are looking at the future of the journey to come. Or in the past, of the journey taken." - Douglas Stockdale for The PhotoBook
