Piece description from the artist
"In art, man is silent, and the image speaks." – Boris Paternak.
This thought guides me when photographing my minimalist series "Lightscapes".
This kind of abstract Photography requires calm, concentration and mindfulness on the part of the photographer. Abstract images that are created are meditative observations of nature and landscape – as a reflection on the world, reduced to its essence: memories and emotions. While creating "Lightscape #9" I focus on light, colors, width, and energy and it is inspired by Marc Rothko's abstract paintings.
"Through my art photography, I want to evoke positive emotions associated with the beauty of nature – to allow people inspiration, contemplation and an escape from a noisy and hectic world. I believe that we should be inspired by art and beauty and that we should stand up and reinvent ourselves every day." – Lena Weisbek, Fine Art Photographer, Germany
