Philipp Scholz Rittermann


Navigating By Light

First Edition Book, 2001
Published by Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego

Publishers description: This catalogue traces Rittermann’s journey from Germany, where he began his explorations with night photography in 1980 to his relocation to the American West, where he continues to live and work today. For Rittermann, the strange appearance of the world at night was his first, most intensive photographic endeavor. Learning how the camera reacts to light reflected off of snow, metal, concrete, and heavy cloud cover, he explored stark industrial settings, city squares, deserted streets, and the faint glow of farmhouses.
