For volume D of his “Materialien”, Peter Piller hiked around the periphery of Graz in spring 2010, on the border between developed and undeveloped districts, between urban offshoots and rural areas. Taking photos on his way, he explores regions where tourists rarely ever set foot and that are probably unknown to most locals as well. This project was part of the steirischer herbst festival and published in collaboration with Camera Austria.

Peter Piller had to find a part-time job in an office to support his work and guarantee some regular income.

The publication is part of the series of artists' projects edited by Christoph Keller.
