TAV – Treno Alto Velocitá – is the name of a high-speed train line which is supposed to link the larger Italian towns in the future and to connect them with France. For two years, the architectural photographer Walter Niedermayr visited the temporary factory, which is being built and dismantled again as the construction of the train line progresses. His photographs reveal with great intensity the monotony of the work and the total isolation of the workers from the landscape surrounding them. The mobile factory hall can be seen as a variant of the traditional conveyor belt – in the almost film-like sequence of the photo series.
