Scenes from Childhood - Tribute to Robert Schumann
As a longtime passionate musician, the idea of visualizing music is a crucial influence of my artistic research.
My current photographic project, 'Scenes from Childhood', is intended to create images that can be synchronized to the legendary composition, 'Kinderszenen' 1838 by Robert Schumann. 'Kinderszenen' captures the feelings of a nostalgic adults reminiscences of youth. The joy, fear, sorrow, imagination, dreams and even hallucinations of childhood I have interpreted into musical snapshots.
For Lens Culture Emerging Talent Awards 2017, I selected ten images from this on-going process, which will be completed by 2018 (180 year anniversary of the composition), with a lot of playfulness, spontaneity and authenticity.
