Welcome Aboard! Photographs 1980–2000 is, at the same time, a monograph on Walter Pfeiffer’s photographic work and an artist’s book, a photo-novel all of its own. In his still lives, landscapes and portraits of youth, Pfeiffer celebrates his quest for beauty and glamour with sophistication, irony, and wit, creating a world between reality and reverie, snapshot and mise-en-scène. With simple means Pfeiffer creates intelligent and classic images of beauty and bliss, imbued with a wistful awareness of their artifice. Stylish, suggestive, and erotic, his images are an encyclopaedia of desire.
