80 years of Eckart Witzigmann
Wild animals usually live hidden away from humans, many of whom have little idea of just how magnificent the animal kingdom is. In fact, hunters are among the few groups to gain a close insight into how animals live in their natural environments.
For his photographic creations, Christoph Burgstaller has been travelling the highest Alpine regions and the lowest alluvial plains for seven years. He has observed Alpine ibex in the mountains and spent many hours lying in bushes to capture on film how wild animals look and behave during different seasons. ‘Unser Wild’ was published by Servus on 15 October 2019.
With more than 500 high-quality pictures on 260 large-format pages, the book provides new and fascinating insights into the animal kingdom. The accompanying texts provide interesting facts and information that give us a new appreciation of wildlife in our era, along with details of when, where and how we can observe the animals ourselves in their natural habitats. The book features an introduction by TV presenter Sepp Forcher.
A selection of the best pictures will be on display at Hangar-7 in the free exhibition ‘Unser Wild’ from 7 November 2019 to 8 December 2019.
