Frank Darius: Welcome to the Garden
by Frank Darius
Publisher's Description
The title Welcome to the Garden is an invitation to go for a walk through the world of Frank Darius (*1963 in Berlin), everyday terrain in which what is naturally rooted crosses with what has been cultivatedly uprooted and shoots forth its own blossoms. When he takes a photograph of a motorcycle left standing in the middle of an automobile underpass and splattered with slush, it does not appear to be dirty, but grounded. This is how the photographer makes a connection to its true nature: horsepower. His pictures simultaneously show the expansiveness of his perceived garden of being, the buzzing of the whole.

The process of discovery that Darius records with his camera is an admiring, often astonishing one. Without capturing what he has seen or plucking something from the whole, he is satisfied with having touched it. Thus his stories grow forth as flowering moments in the here and now.
