Two of Canada’s most prestigious art institutions have for the first time collaborated on a comprehensive publication dedicated to an uncommon new talent. Nicolas Baier reveals the of the world through the newest of means at the pictorial artist’s disposal (digital photography) as well as the oldest (composition, colour and form). His increasingly discreet use of technology has transformed his photographic œuvre into a far more malleable medium, more analogous to painting. His photographs are a stunning example of technology at the service of imagination. Three essays, an artist’s statement, an interview and numerous colour plates provide analysis, opinion and visual delight.
