Die Motivation für die Bilder der Serie Noble Classics

stammt von meiner ungebrochenen Faszination für die Werke

des wohl größten Schwarz-Weiß-Landschaftsfotografen

des 20. Jahrhunderts, Ansel Adams. 

 

Wie Adams begeistere ich mich für die Landschaft des

amerikanischen Südwestens; und wie Adams versuche

ich die dramatische Wirkung, die diese Landschaft

jeder guten Fotografie verleiht, immer wieder auf 

andere Motive zu übertragen. Ich verbeuge 

mich in großer Demut vor seinem Talent und

freue mich, seine Fotografien als Inspiration 

betrachten zu dürfen.

 

 

The Noble Classics series is inspired by my never ending

fascination with the art of Ansel Adams - in my

eyes the greatest black-and-white landscape photographer

of the 20th century.

 

Like Adams I have a huge passion for the American

Southwest; and like Adams I never stop

trying to translate the drama this landscape gives

to a well made photography to other

photographic subjects. I bow to Ansel Adams

great talent, and I am glad to 

find unbroken inspiration from his art.
