When I go walking in a landscape and think ‘I’m getting closer’ there’s always a new ‘far away’.
In 2017 I photographed the filled with mysterious stories Montserrat in Cataluña, the stones I brought with me from the Moroccan Sahara and Tibetan Highlands and in 2018 the equally mysterious and mighty Georgian Caucasus. Fascinated by the silent, stable presence and yet constant changeability of the ‘faces of the mountain’ I look into the question When is a Mountain? In photographic studies I research this the experience of scale, perspective and space with a variation of images of mountains, rocks and stones.
“Factors like time, light and distance are decisive in the experience of something as massive as a mountain. But can the feeling of a mountain also be discovered in a piece of a mountain, or even in a single stone? The diversity of her images shows how variable our view of something can be. Stillness has played an important role in her work from the beginning of her career, but the series When is a Mountain creates a surprising dynamic, without losing this stillness.”– The Eriskay Connection
