IV. Ausgebrannt
The light of the south reveals the surreal shadow of everyday life. The mysterious black and white photographs document a place between transience and return, light and shadow, past and future, life and death. The series „Ausgebrannt“, was created during a one-week stay in Italy and describes the magical place of being in between.(cooperation work with Katrin Froschauer)
