Photo work, 2020
Fine art print on forex, 50 x 50 cm
In Berlin there are many abandoned railway tracks, especially in industrial areas. One of these tracks is located next to the Philip Morris factory in Neukölln. I followed the railroad with my camera and present some moments in this photo work. I have called these objects “railway flowers”, because you almost get the impression that things have grown spontaneously out of the railway. But if you stand still for a moment and you see what kind of objects they are, you realize that these are all products of “human nature”… and hopefully then you get the idea to take a more critical look at our behavior.
