The greatest difficulty for a photographer is to see the strange in the familiar. That's why almost every landscape photographer thinks she lives in the most boring area there is. Yet it is often simply familiarity, that makes our immediate surroundings seem photographically boring.
In Europe, this is especially true of forests. Forests are everywhere. They are taken for granted and are therefore often no longer perceived as particularly beautiful or worthy of protection.
„Woodland - Portraits I“ shows pictures of special character trees taken in German forests. Only a few shots are from national parks, most of them are from a city forest that serves local recreation. The photographs make the beauty and tranquility for the viewer to experience, which European forests radiate.
