« I like everything that is disproportionate, things that can be find in my urban photos where the human is only a tiny part of the photo compared to the nature.» LUDWIG FAVRE

About the artwork

Among all the subjects that he has photographed, Ludwig Favre has a particular fondness for the vast landscapes of the United States. Particularly appreciating the low rays of the evening and morning, in the golden hours, the artist applies a somewhat nostalgic soft tonality to his photographs. In southern California, Palm Springs, in the middle of the desert, was first immortalised by Robert Doisneau in 1960 as part of a report for Fortune magazine on the construction of a golf field. This spectacular oasis of greenery is nestled into the hollow of the valley of Coachella, with its huge palm tree, wide rectilinear avenues, and mountain backdrop. The region also hosts some of the most elegant architecture of the twentieth century. Considered one of the best examples of modernism in the desert, this home was designed by Richard Neutra in 1946 for the magnate of large department stores, Edgar J Kaufmann, who had also commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to build the emblematic Fallingwater in Pennsylvania ten years earlier.
