Resting around the campfire can be very relaxing after an intense hike in nature. A series of photographs is dedicated to this topic because I associate numerous beautiful memories with active enjoyment of nature and a campfire afterwards. Golden glowing flames, rising steam or deep orange glowing wood can take the viewer into a fascinating world. I associate fire with magic, creativity and unpredictability. It can be destructive, but it can also create something new.
The series is inspired by the enchanting interplay of lights, shadows and colors. The variety of compositions created by mother nature represents the magic of a moment and movement at the same time. How short or long, fleeting or intense a moment may be depends on individual feelings.
In general I don’t consider photography as an attempt to capture a special moment, but as a kind of admiration. I love symbols of creation, being and transience - that´s why fire is one of my favorite subjects.
