Where and how do cars sleep in Los Angeles? Edition Lammerhuber presents 'Sleeping Cars' by reportage photographer Gerd Ludwig

Gerd Ludwig :"There are more than seven million registered vehicles in Los Angeles County, California/USA. Images of traffic jams are omnipresent. But where do all those cars go to rest? These photographs examine where LA cars are spending their nights. In middle-class neighborhoods people often have 1-2 car garages but rather use them for storage. So cars are left on the streets to park overnight, often getting covered during holidays, or when their owners are out of town. The series shows cars that have a presence. They command their space. They are mostly loners and shy away from being too close to others. Many sleep in covers, wearing them like nightgowns, though some sleep in the nude. Some take daytime naps, a few lucky ones sleep in pairs."

GERD LUDWIG has been working for National Geographic for 25 years. His focus on environmental issues and the socio-economic changes following the dissolution of the Soviet Union after the end of the Cold War. Ludwig's photos are exhibited worldwide in exhibitions and have received awards, including the Lucie Award as "International Photographer of the Year". At Photokina in 2014, he was honored by the German Photograph Society with the Dr. Erich-Salomon Prize for his work. His latest book, "The Long Shadow of Chernobyl", was also awarded numerous prizes such as the Silver Cube of the Art Directors Club New York and the POY Best Photography Book Award.

EDITION LAMMERHUBER presents in the book 'Die schönste Landschaft der Welt' (The most beautiful landscape in the world) visual stories and lyrical photos of a landscape in Lower Austria's Mostviertel

Soft, mild, sensual! An infinite landscape park before the first hay harvest, a geometric wonder in winter and when 200 000 cider pear trees are in blossom – pure magic. Multiple award-winning photographer Lois Lammerhuber and acclaimed author Evelyn Schlag take readers on a journey to a landscape of harmonious superlatives – full of poetry and geometric patterns, plus the seasons as sights you just have to see.

This magic world of soft, green hills, a white ocean of thousands upon thousands cider trees in blossom, and farms resembling castles: Not just a fairy tale – the most beautiful landscape in the world. It's located in Lower Austria and is called the Mostviertel region. Author Evelyn Schlag and photographer Lois Lammerhuber have the proof.

For several years, the author and photographer have followed the same route of only 56 kilometers again and again, which winds along "the ridge" of the northernmost rim of the Alps between Kürnberg and Sonntagberg. On the one side, there's a 400-meter drop into the Danube valley which expands the panoramic view all the way to the horizon – and on the other side, mountain ranges rise like cascades into the sky. Both author and photographer think this landmark in the Lower Austrian Mostviertel is the final scenic seduction.

“Die schönste Landschaft der Welt” (The most beautiful landscape in the world) is the third book of the series “Visual Poetry” after “Copacabana Palace” and “Up to the Horizon”. With this series, Edition Lammerhuber pays tribute to the work of those photographers who are able to radiate emotion and sensuality with their imagery enabling them to create a very special atmosphere for the reader beyond the narrative of the respective story.

EVELYN SCHLAG, born in Waidhofen, writes lyrics, prose and essays. For her work, she was awarded numerous prizes, and most recently won the Austrian Art Prize for Literature in 2015. She has a strong empathic relationship with the world which she describes. She simply lets the language talk and keeps words on a long leash. The result is carefree use of language itself that surprises and seduces.

LOIS LAMMERHUBER was born in St. Peter in the Au. He was chosen as the best photographer in the world three times, and has been a member of the Art Directors Club New York since 1994. In 2014, he was awarded the Austrian First Class Cross of Honor for Science and Art.

ABOUT THE BOOK – DON ROSA is one of the world’s most popular cartoonists. For over 20 years he kept up the duck universe of his idol Carl Barks with his stories about Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck and the Beagle Boys Inc. He is adored for his detailed duck adventures. His biography Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck earned him immortality and an Eisner Award, the world’s most important comics prize. But who is the man behind the ducks, who stopped drawing ten years ago and still attracts a growing fan base? German public broadcast journalist. Alex Jakubowski, and Lois ­Lammerhuber, one of the best photographers of his generation, spent a lot of time with the star cartoonist on his fantastic, remote home in the wide reaches of Kentucky.

Surrounded by one of the largest comics collections in North America, White Castle fast food memorabilia, amazing libraries of books, films and CDs, countless huge monitors, exquisite vintage cars and an enviable pinball collection, they talked for days in the artist’s studio, traced Don Rosa’s childhood on trips to Louisville and discovered the many facets of a man who has become almost as legendary as a passionate collector as he has for his art as a cartoonist. On all fours they crawled with Don through his beloved chili plantation for hours and in the evening enjoyed his sensational skills for barbecuing monster steaks and super chickens. And, of course, the large-format book also reports on their investigations into Don’s t-shirt mania and on his dogs Aggie and Leo.

ALEX JAKUBOWSKI was born in Berlin in 1970. He is passionate about collecting and reading comics. For his doctoral thesis he studied election campaign spots on German TV and has worked as a TV journalist in public broadcasting for more than 20 years. After five years as TV correspondent at ARD's capital studio in Berlin he has returned to freelancing for ARD-aktuell in Frankfurt am Main, producing pieces for news formats like Tagesschau and Tagesthemen and for other programmes. He is also an external lecturer and teaches in adult education.

LOIS LAMMERHUBER is a photographer and publisher. His close collaboration with GEO Magazine started in 1984, continues to this day, and has greatly influenced his approach to photography. His pictures have been published in hundreds of books and magazines and earned him international awards, including three times the Graphis Photo Awards for the world’s best photo report of the year. He joined the Art Directors Club New York in 1994. In 1996 he set up Edition Lammerhuber publishing house. In 2014 he received the Republic of Austria’s Cross of Honour, First Class, for Science and Art.
