The Unapproachable

The analogous photographic work “The Unapproachable” is concerned with trees those stand alone and work in their predominantly urban environment. There are trees that stand out impressively, blend harmoniously into a cityscape or lose themselves as insignificant accessories. Thus the trees are also symbolic of the assertion and loneliness of man in the anonymity and dynamism of the modern city.

With the help of a black & white infrared film, the visibility of the trees is amplified and extended to a dimension of reality, which is thus not visible to humans. At the same time, the special charm of pictures from a pinhole camera neutralizes the intrusion of urban details. The 76 images of the whole series were created in Germany, France, England, Poland, USA, China and Japan in 2014 and 2015.
