Hans Gasser, born 1950 in Schwaz in Tirol, Austria, lives in Innsbruck today. He has been interested in photography and its many facets since his youth. Today, it is above all landscape photography that fascinates him. It is particularly the countries marked by desert landscapes that challenge him as a photographer.

To better convey the expanse and beauty of these majestic landscapes he has progressively spent more time with panorama photography. Today he uses the panoramic image not only as a super-wide angle; more and more he sees it as a favorable format that best corresponds to our field of vision. To that end, he consciously takes advantage of the entire spectrum between wide angle and strong telephoto lenses, which creates the unique perspectives of his panoramic scenes.

Gasser’s photographs have been shown in numerous international exhibitions and multi-media lectures. In 2001 he began the collaboration with Mannheim’s EditionPanorama publishing house, who in the same year unveiled his first panoramic calendar project “Sahara” at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Given the first calendar’s success, a new one followed on its heels in the following year. The calendar has been available in two formats since 2006: the Magnum panorama calendar “Sahara” (120 x 48 cm) with the perpetual calendar, as well as the smaller premium calendar “Sahara” in cooperation with the DuMont calendar publishers. 2008 saw the addition of the “To the North” calendar in the premium calendar series.

The first Gasser monograph Sahara was released in 2004 by EditionPanorama-Bibliothek; the photo book Jemen was published in the same series in 2006. A further book, Sahara Panorama, was published in the Panorama Global series in 2007.
