Art Description

Photography: Color, Digital, Photo, Paper on Paper.

I love the sea and the sky above it. Two infinite shells surrounding the earth, both at the source of life, are in an eternal conversation. They are a mirror of each other's mood and usually need few words to understand each other. The relationship between sea and sky is resembling an intimate relationship between two people: the occasional heated discussion or emotional conversation, sometimes even a fierce quarrel, at other times a gentle caress or a long intimate moment ... Sometimes there seems to be some distance, but usually they are very close together. They are forever connected, they want and can not live without each other.

Every time when I climb on the dunes, as I walk the beach and when I see those two in front of me, I feel like a privileged person. Privileged that I can listen to them, that I may see their interaction, that I am allowed to learn their language and may capture this on photo to share with everyone.

In a series of 10 photos I capture the words that the sea and sky speak to each other: the language of sea and sky.

The inspiration for this project comes of the northwest coast of Denmark, but also of the wonderful words of the Indian poet and writer Rabindranath Tagore [Stray Birds, 1916]:

What language is thine, O sea?
The language of eternal question.
What language is thy answer, O sky?
The language of eternal silence.

The title of this image is "Eternal question".

The blur caused by movement will be strengthened in the large format printing. This contributes positively to the impressionist atmosphere (see the detail image).

* Cotton paper is made off 100% pure and natural cotton fibers.
Its natural white, smooth and velvety matt surface, the wonderful feel and the perfect color reproduction make it the perfect basis for long-lasting works of art.
A special advantage is its extreme longevity. The aging resistance is due to pure, acid-free paper, which does not require any optical brighteners or other additives used in papers. The paper does not yellow, the prints remain beautiful under normal conditions for a lifetime. The extremely long shelf life is certified according to ISO 9706 (FograCert 28800).
