Night Photographer - der Nachtfotograf. Photographie zwischen Sonnenuntergang und Sonnenaufgang, mit Hilfe langer Belichtungszeiten, einer grossen Auswahl von Taschenlampen, Blitzlichtern und vorhandenem Licht. Nicht einfach nur, um einen Moment festzuhalten, sondern um vergessenen Orten Leben zurueck zu geben, um einen Blick in vergangene Zeiten zu ermoeglichen und den Eindruck einer parallelen Dimension zu erschaffen. Wenn die Sonne untergeht und die Menschheit sich schlafen legt, erwachen sonst leblose Dinge zum Leben.
I mostly shoot abandoned, forgotten or retired stuff. Old cars or gas stations, junk yards, old signs... Things that are no longer in use, most of them are forgotten and abandoned. With my night pictures i try to show what is left of these places and things. I imaging them sitting next to the road or hidden behind bushes. At daylight, those things are just that - abandoned things. At night, when mankind goes to sleep and the busy world slows down, i can show their "soul". I can show how these things are sitting next to the road, remembering their past. Thinking about old times when they were still in use. I am trying to show the emotions that these objects might have or that are connected to them.
I imagine these objects thinking about times long gone and i hope people are thinking about them too. Think about all the things that happened here. Think about all the good and bad memories that people associated with these things before they abandoned them. Think about why people abandoned them. Think about all the stories that are behind those objects...
I am trying to show a parallel dimension in which those objects might have a soul, have memories. I am trying to make them visible. Then, when the night ends and the sun comes up again, those objects go back to sleep, becoming rusty parts of junk again...
