I was shooting this series in a few sand pits and gravel mines in and around Berlin.
Technically I tried to experiment with time and light very much here. I did night shots and shots at noon under a bright sun. I was interested in finding out what the light and the colours do to the locations.
I mostly worked on this series in the night or on Sundays when nobody was around.
A time and situation which is quite ambiguous:
Even though these locations are completely man-made and one hardly can imagine a more drastic change to a landscape, I often caught myself seeing the images as they have been there forever exactly the way my camera captured them.
A very wrong interpretation because each time I came back there, the places had changed a bit.
A constant flux of material and traces in an almost fluid landscape.
