Eyescapes – reflections on my eyes
In my photo series "Eyescapes" I photograph landscapes mirrored on my own eyes. With the camera on my eye, I take the pictures in the moment of perception. Being refracted on the lens of my eye, the images are distorted and changed in their spaciality. On the upper edge of the picture the eyelids and eyelashes enter the scene and open the image space.
The photographs become both – insights into and outlooks on a familiar yet changed world. For me it is very fascinating that by looking at the photographs the viewer witnesses what I have seen before. Not confined purely to visual perception, the pictures also rouse the imagination and memories. Supplemented and accompanied by personal pictures, they are lent a tangible, subjective character far exceeding the scope of their determinate, visual substance.
