    Artist Statement

    Since 2003, I have been taking pictures of industrial areas and abandoned places within all Europe. I also research information about the related factories and places as well as historical post cards, old letter heads, labels and advertisements to document the history of the factories and places.

    Abandoned places and industrial ruins are generally seen as “spots of dirt” and people feel uncomfortable around them. Often such places have a very long and interesting history, which seems almost forgotten today. Instead of the activity of former days there is nothing but silence and emptiness. Instead of windows, black holes are staring out of the walls.

    But very often the architecture of elapsed eras is attractive and astonishing. In combination with the emptiness and beginning decay, such places often spread the impression of a dream world. Decay and nature give new structures to strictly geometric forms and lines. Moisture, moss and rust give new colors to gray halls. I trie to capture these impressions with my photographs. The beauty of decay is illustrated in its huge variety from huge industrial plants to small details.

    Thanks for your purchase of an artwork entitled Spiel Mir Das Lied Vom Tod that literally translates "Play me the song of death" from German. You might also like Dead Piano on Ugallery. I am so happy and grateful that you love my work! Can you please send a photo of Spiel Mir Das Lied Vom Tod that went over your upright piano to me? The artwork would be a wonderful gift idea for music lovers like yourself. I will appreciate it very much.

    Profondo Rosso is named after a movie for its colour reference in relation to the photography. Profondo Rosso (also known as Deep Red or The Hatchet Murders)[1] is a 1975 giallo film directed and written by Dario Argento and co-written by Bernardino Zapponi. It was released on March 7, 1975 in Italy and June 11, 1976 in the United States. The film's score was composed and performed by Goblin. It stars David Hemmings as a music teacher who investigates a series of murders performed by a mysterious figure wielding a hatchet. Although the film was not a financial success internationally, the film has met with critical acclaim. Source Wikipedia

    I am so happy and grateful that my work can appeal to an international audience, especially the US of the English-speaking world. Thank you for the most recent sales of Profondo Rosso, TBC2 and Villa Branca. It has recently come to my attention that all 3 objects are meanwhile demolished. You have good taste.
