Assigned by Stiftung Baukultur Thüringen, I developed a photographic essay on life and living in Thuringia. My pictures will be on display in the exhibition »Plattform Wohndebatte« in the Neufert-Box in Weimar-Gelmeroda. The vernissage of the exhibition will take place on December 2nd, 2021.
More pictures of the project will follow soon.

While working on a former project I started to collect colored soil and to experiment with it. With ‘Cher soleil, chère terre,’ I try to get a bit closer to soil and consider their diversity, complexity and fragility.
For my work I collected colored soil, elutriated it, dried it, grinded it into pigment and processed it with linseed oil varnish into a glaze. Alongside the manufacture of the glaze, I created images of the soil during the various stages of processing. Finally, I coated the prints with the paint and thus, so to speak, images of soil with itself.
