[IN] THE THRESHOLD
A threshold is a limited and marked area between two spaces. It is some kind of no-man’s-land, which belongs to its neighbour-spaces and at the same time is independent from them. We can also understand it as a gateway, in which time and space do not exist.
Following this conceptual idea, the photos show a kind of limbo, in which the absence of man underlines his permanent existence. Life’s Life’s impermanence though, is always present through his depiction of empty ruins as well as destroyed buildings and objects. In the photos of In the Threshold show mainly deserted outdoor locations, so that the relation between human made or occupied space and natural or urban surrounding is an outstanding matter here. That is why the works of this series can be understood as contemporary landscape and city photographs, which are able to capture the beauty and ugliness as well as the poetics and politics of our environment.
