Anyone who takes the time to get really close to nature can gain their own intriguing impressions. Trees in particular offer endless potential for creative inspiration, precisely at the point where people and nature meet.

Be it forest workers, walkers or pathfinders who spray, paint or carve their eye-catching signals onto trees, or be it foresters or conservationists who leave their traces on the surface of the wood, or perhaps even trees as messengers for communicative people – interesting impressions can be found everywhere. They are often hidden, permanently changing, and create different images all the time depending on the light, weather, season and external influences.

I discover them, get really close to them with the camera, decide on the frame, the light, the perspective, the intensity and the format, but leave them entirely in their original state, just as people or nature left them a short or long time ago.
