LeerRaum: Lost in the Airport?
Project info

It is a common nightmare: you suddenly feel that you are alone. Alone at a place that usually is crowded by people, the air imbued by the sounds of children, steps, people shouting, announcements. But now? A strange silence emphasizes the fact that you are walking through an empty airport. What if this scenery actually happens? Can this be true? With the first part of his concept series „LeerRaum“ photographer Jürgen F. Novotny explores the seemingly empty spaces of a lost(?) airport.

The point: every photography in this series originates from a walk through a very populated and noisy airport (here: CGN Cologne/Bonn) during a normal day of the week. With his concept „LeerRaum“ (german for „empty spaces“) Jürgen F. Novotny tries to prove that a photo – captured in the right moment – is able to breath and communicate completely contrarious messages by isolating nightmarishly calm moments in the chaos.
