On Vacation, 2014
How do locals and visitors spend their leisure time in the north of Luxembourg?
“On Vacation” plays out on Lambert’s home stage. The starting point for this project was imbued with interest and curiosity about Luxembourg’s tourist landscape. The images of Yvon Lambert illustrate the photographer’s experiences from various angles: from the quiet observer all the way to the active consumer of the region’s leisure and recreational activities.
The photography work illustrates tradition, cultural heritage and their marketing. Much like an essay on individual visions and local identity, the photographs are a convincing descriptive sketch of freedom and leisure time, which appear neither real nor unreal, but instead genuine and authentic.
