The aesthetics of urban places is a mixture between functionality, confusion and desolateness.
No light, no silence, no sunset.
Nature might be an imagination which only exists in our minds. The distance between nature and human beings is symbolized in many ways, for example by windows in buildings.
In this summer I am going to finish my work on the Baltic Sea and its hidden cargo. The photographs are captured with an old school 4×5″ analog field camera. Film is definitely not dead at all. The picture above is made with my iphone and shows the bad weather we had in northern Europe in may 2017 when I was heading to Estonia.
This old door can be found unchanged since decades in my home. It has been there since I can think. It always had a meaning being open or closed. I still think, that closed doors mean nothing bad.
Soon midsummer will come in Scandinavia. I have been in Finland a week ago where midsummer announces itself. The sunsets take longer, the light is warm and the mood is easy. I love it.
I spent the last two weeks capturing new images for my photographic series “Baltic Sea – hidden cargo” in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Finland. Find the editorial text for this series here. The Baltic Sea is a unique natural area which suffers from human exploitation.
