The powers and tranquility that a tree carries within it, has a magical pull on people. The tree is a symbol of life in spring and in winter hibernation to gather strength to start the cycle anew. It represents life and nature in its entirety. My photography reflects the complexity of human thought at every stage of life. Furthermore, it is my personal processing of the conditions created by the Corona situation in 2021.

Suddenly it is there – the new reality, the world is in a deceleration mode, perceived isolation, human alienation and pigeonholing of opinions. We humans have different perspectives on the things that surround us. The dynamics, or rather drama, of how we as a culture, civilization and as individuals respond to crises is critical to how we produce our future. The tolerance and acceptance of these points of view results in a vision of development. In conclusion, for everyone tangible, a tree stands.

This fine art photography series “Cherry Tree” was created in 2021. I documented the tree in every season by circling the tree at a distance of 30m and taking a photo about every 2m. This way, about 60 pictures are taken per session. In the search for a suitable tree, the geographical conditions were ultimately the deciding factor. This included the undeveloped free location, flat terrain, and the type of tree because of the beautiful colored inflorescence. Weather conditions and sun position were also crucial for the success of a session. In post-processing, these resulting images are overlaid, aligned, edited and given a transparency. So that this unusual view merges into a complete work of art.
