Synopsis: Walter Pfeiffer, whose work in the 1970s and 1980s prefigured many of the decisive developments in contemporary art today, is a classic artist's artist. Famous and beloved among art aficionados, Pfeiffer almost has been forgotten by the public at large. Now it's time to discover him, as his images seem more timely than ever. """"Welcome Aboard! Photographs 1980 -- 2000"""" is both a monograph on Pfeiffer's photographic work and an artist's book, a photo-novel all of its own. Pfeiffer takes you on a long trip from suburban bliss to the horse race at Ascot, from wind-swept beaches to majestic mountaintops. Pfeiffer knows our dreams and artfully plays with them. In his still-lifes, landscapes, and portraits of beautiful boys and mischievous women, Pfeiffer celebrates his quest for beauty and glamour with sophistication, irony, and wit. Pfeiffer leads you into a world between reality and reverie, snapshot and mise-en-scène. The book is a photo album from Arcadia. 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 encyclopedia of desire.
