The photographs in the portfolios „Der Garten“(The Garden) and „Animals“, were taken in 1988 on Bulls Island, a small uninhibited island off the Coast of South Carolina(USA) At a time only about 40 people were allowed to come to the island shipped over by the park rangers and a person picked them up again after a couple of hours. The side of the island facing the Atlantic Ocean was complete wilderness, littered with sun bleached skeletons of plants, bushes and trees. With my little daughter in a seat on my back they were some of the most intensive hours I have ever experienced in this garden “Eden” for eye-animals like me. With a light that carved out every finest detail and made extremely short shutter times possible, being of great help in my Sherpa position. As usual for the way I work I used not much film, one or two shots of one object and even the clipping changes were close to nil. I am always surprised myself, that, since I would not hesitate a second to alter things because “authenticity” is of no interest for me, all photo-graphics I am showing here, are purest photography, with marginal alterations and finished as digital prints. I guess that hunting for images in the described way I have to see a “ready” image, before I take the photo. So with the images shown here no selection process from major series of images of the same objects, no relevant alterations of the cut outs and very few corrections beyond weeding out scratches, for example, took place. In this portfolio in the image “Tor” (Gate) a small gap in upper left corner of the tree trunk was closed and that was it.
