*** Honorable mention recipient @ IPA's 'One-Shot: Harmony' *** While the world seems to be filled with discord and conflict at the moment, the International Photography Awards (IPA) wanted to “highlight the beauty of unity and harmony that exists in all corners and in all aspects of life” with its competition and invited photographers from all over the world to share their take on harmony to show “how our differences and unique qualities can bring us together, how beautiful the world is because of the diversity that exists—in nature, in culture, in humanity.” This theme deeply resonates within me on both a personal and a professional level and I decided to enter 'Cloudy Morning Sky Sun' as my interpretation of harmony. With this image I explore the ancient concept of Yin and Yang, two contrasting but also complimentary forces that interconnect to form a oneness. They ultimately describe duality not opposition: one cannot exist without the other. When both are in balance, harmony exists and oneness remains. When one predominates, the other is weakened and oneness is lost. I split the original image into a colored and a black-and-white part separated by a thin line. While the Sun in the colored part symbolizes Yang, it turns into a Yin-Moon in the black-and-white part. The line represents the Taiji, a border separating Yin and Yang and thereby erst creating duality. For this very special print, I chose an original photo print on Kodak Metallic paper under 1/16’’ (2 mm) acrylic glass. The print is mounted on an aluminum dibond backing and has metal rails on the back as a hanging system that is invisible from the front, but gives the picture a floating appearance (approximately 0.39’’ (1 cm) off the wall). It is framed with a thin aluminum Slimline Case. This print is part of a limited edition of nine prints. Additionally, there is one artist's print. It is hand signed and numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity, which is printed on Hahnemühle premium deckle edged paper with watermark and fluorescent security fibers. Both the artwork and the certificate of authenticity have an identical serialized numbered hologram ensuring that the certificate belongs to this particular photo print only.

I am intrigued by skies. There are days when I could do nothing else but watch the sky above me. I am fascinated by the vague abstractness of what I see. Colors ranging from a deep summer blue to other shades of blue often tinted with whitish clouds; grey in all shades; warm reddish, orange and pink hues when the sun sets and so much more… I never tire of skies. They are never the same. There is no rationality only feeling. At best, they make me forget about every day hassles and leave me with a feeling of inner peace and calm.
