People are magically drawn to the power and tranquility that a tree embodies. The tree is a symbol of life in spring and rest in winter to. Gather strength and start the cycle anew. A symbol of life and nature in its entirety. My photographic realization reflects the complexity of human thought at every stage of life. It is my personal reflection of the Corona conditioned situation in 2021.

Suddenly it is there – the new reality, the world is in slowing down, perceived isolation, human alienation and judgement of opinions. We as a society 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 most important to how we build up our future. The tolerance and acceptance of these points of view results in the end in a vision of development. At the end, tangible, for everyone, 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.
