Places of Happiness

Lichter, wohin das Auge reicht, grelle Farben, Musik allerorts, Menschenmassen, Gedränge, der Geruch von Popcorn, Waffeln oder Gegrilltem - eine widersprüchliche Mixtur aus Heiterkeit, Nervenkitzel, Gier, Entspannung und Stress. Ein Rummel ist ein Ort der Reizüberflutung für alle Sinne. Die Idee dieser Serie war es, all das auf Fragmente zu reduzieren, die die spezielle Ästhetik dieser Orte wiedergeben und die in der Masse von Eindrücken untergehen.

Die Fotografien auf der Homepage sind ein ausgewählter Teil der Serie.
 

(ENGLISH) Lights as far as the eyes can reach, shrill colours, music everywhere, masses of people and crowds, the smell of barbecued meat – a contradictory mixture of gaiety, thrills, greed, relaxation and stress. Funfairs are places of pleasure as well as sensory overload of all senses. The idea of this series was to reduce all that to fragments which reflect the specific aesthetic of these places and disappear amongst the multitude of impressions.

The photographs on the homepage present an exclusive selection of the series.
