In “Nature Monuments” a broader natural reality is highlighted which surpasses human agony, but without concealing it. The lens focusing on the earth and on the ants’ movement carrying food to their colony is just a detail. The close observation of the flock of starlings, which shades the sky, reveals all the details of their physical build. The places depicted “make us suspicious” of the world surrounding us. The human does not dominate over natural reality, but he traverses it.
Through the images I do not aim to create a landscape of incomparable natural beauty and harmony but to construct a new totality where the balance between the universal and the particular is built upon various elements of chaos.
