Entry Description

The “Alpine Strukturen” are a long- term photography project. My deep fascination for the different formation processes of our planet Earth that still shape our surroundings every day is my great driving force behind this work. In the series of this work I focus with abstracted photographs on the geological history and processes that formed the Alps and the resulting structure of the landscape – often under the aspect of transience due to the ongoing climate change. My photographs interpret the natural structures as shapes, lines and textures which, at first glance, lets the photographs resemble as abstract paintings or pencil drawings. Accompanying the different working periods the same-titled book "Alpine Strukturen" is published.
