«The distant. Sometimes, when I getting into it, it touches me – from behind.»
Manuel Rüetschi

Especially at a time when the perception of the near inflationary has increased, a closer look to the distant deserves special attention. Especially because the near often tries to look like the distant. Tele Vision? Wrong. It's Near Vision which pretends to be seeing in the distance. Notebook? Smartphone ? Closer and closer.
In this investigation the study of the horizon is a corollary.

The moments in between
I try in this work to make visible as many manifestations of the between. The faults are deliberately not suppressed. Atmospheric disturbances, humidity, light refraction, suspended particles, dust, rain drops, vignetting, pollution, blur, the noise of the camera sensor, compression artifacts, color shifts. All remain visible. As witnesses. They illustrate the impossibility to grasp the horizon to preserve.

Realization
The photographs were taken in the years 2011 to 2013. Always in the same place (N 051 ° 13 'E 001 ° 24'), the view to the east.

The images are materialized as Fine Art inkjet prints on Hahnemühle Bamboo art paper 297 × 210 mm. From each photograph only one print is made.
