Tree Lights/Way Home, Dresden, 31st of December 2014

The photo series shows impressions captured during New Year’s Eve, December 31st, 2014. They are taken on the way back home, after attending a concert at the church in Dresden Plauen. I was weakened by a cold. The resulting photographs reflect the way I felt and perceived my surroundings: a blurred smokey vision, the floating and flickering lights of street lamps, objects like trees and details of bark and textures are focused only in parts. In this state, it was important to me to also photograph the chestnut tree, where I had been doing rituals and giving food offerings to crossroad spirits.

Forest Land/Lachten, Dresdner Heide, 13th of October 2013/15th of October 2016

This series addresses the condition of the forests and the interaction between man and the sylvan realm. The extraction of resin from live trees is a central motif in this series. In the past the trees were cut in order to collect their resin. The cuts in the bark of the trees are called “Lachten” in German. They form a symmetrical pattern on the stems of the trees. Several such trees create a surreal and bizarre looking scenery, in which the wounded trees occur almost extra-terrestrial. Besides this, the forest is a place that we visit to find peace and clarity. A walk in the woods is proven to strengthen the immune system. I enjoy searching for resin and other treasures among the trees and gather strength when spending time in the woods. The photos in this series are meant to capture the fascination and the alien as well as familiar feeling that I connect with the forest theme.

Juniper Dream

I am on a cemetery. The soil has been freshly dug over and there are several young shrubs and trees planted, amongst them a nicely smelling juniper. They are talking to me until I release it was me who has planted them.

[Some weeks ago I harvested a branch from a nearby juniper tree to craft myself a rod similar to the one mentioned in the grimoire of Johannes Dr. Faust…]
