from the series Der Weg ist das Ziel (the journey is the reward)
This work from my diploma thesis was the first to show circular lines so clearly. These circles are inexplicable and they keep appearing under mysterious circumstances… Hence the title, although strictly speaking it is not a cornfield, but a meadow with dandelions.
Today, 14 years later, at least the circumstances are no longer so mysterious. The circles are created when I photograph a structured surface from an elevated position (like a railway embankment) and with the right combination of speed, camera movement and shutter speed. So I know how to get the circles; but why they appear is still a mystery to me.
I simply enjoy their beauty.
