Weifenbach’s first two monographs were clearly about place, but not rooted to a specific location, however, Lana is situated in a particular locale. Specifically, a town of the same name resting in the South Tyrol mountains of Italy. Weifenbach has never shied from the beautiful. As a result, her images celebrate natural color. As well as through the use of selective focus she distills scenes and plants to their essential aspects. She also embodies the ideal role of the artist working in nature, allowing the manifold of sensory perceptions to filter through her mind, translating this materia prima into her own graceful language.
