In the mountains  (2017 - in progress)

A year ago I started with the project In the mountains.

In the mountains is inspired by, among other things, photographic panoramas as made in the late 19th century for topographical and later military purposes. In a sense this functional application of photography reflects the fascinating urge for 'scientific completeness', which is so typical for that time. The second half of 19th century was a time of new inventions, discoveries and great expectations.

With In the mountains I try to explore boundaries between ‘wandering about’ and ‘getting lost’. On the one hand, it is a prerequisite to reconsider your views and gain new insights ... but it is also a reflection on the directionlessness of this time.

In the mountains is a fictional journey in  which I play a game with fantasy versus reality ... with hope and consolation versus pragmatism.
