At the center of this selection on the theme of landscape/body is the individual gaze of the artist, who captures the reality seen not only as an atmospheric detail, but above all in its determining compositional structures.
As a viewer, one can now comprehend this creative part of the photographers, sees in a certain way through their eyes – for example, the archetypal landscape depictions can also be understood as relationships of geometric bodies that are brought into relation with each other. In some cases, a seemingly abstract detail turns out to be a fragment of human origin, and the light-and-shadow play of concave and convex surfaces of lonely dunes is repeated on the naked model – the body as landscape.
