“Grün hinter Gittern” (greenery behind bars)

from the series Made in China

photo taken from the night train Guangzhou – Shanghai

I have a conflicted relationship with man-made structures… So far, the most I have allowed into my image selections is a lane or a hint of train tracks. But I have always liked photographing them — the fences, the tracks and the grids of this world that can be seen from the train. I call the photographs motion studies, delight in the effects, and leave them out of the selection for my next exhibition. But not this time. This picture of the open foil tunnels with the plants growing in rows underneath simply touched me, and I am curious to see if you feel the same way.

You can purchase this motif as a high-quality fine art print in museum quality. Hahnemühle Natural Line Hemp 290 is a very sustainable fine art paper,since it’s made from 60% hemp, a fast growing, low-ressurce fibre. The shop offers two different formats to choose from. (open edition)

All the photos of this series are also available through my wonderful agency Freiraum. They offer an exclusive and limited edition of high-quality prints on canvas for all the works in “Made in China”. When you order with them, the production and shipment will be taken care of by the professionals, and you will get your signed certificate of authenticity from me.

I love this photo, and I’m sure I will soon show it in an exhibition. If this is the artwork that touches your heart and that you want to own as an original, please contact me. I will let you know as soon as the picture is on show and available for purchase.
