Heinrich Riebesehl has had a major influence on contemporary German art photography. His series of Agricultural Landscapes produced between 1976 and 1979 introduced the photographer as an early Germany exponent of a documentary style. According to Peter Sager, these “laconic images of a laconic region” represent the point of departure for Riebesehl’s many years of exploration of the cultivated landscape of northern Germany.
