The POSTCARD LOVE series
Postcard images determinate how we see the world. We are traveling in order to see what we expect to see. By following the images of a certain place we have in mind, we limit landscape experience to our imagination fed by cliché.
Postcard Love is composed out of images shot on the lake site of Biel Lake in Switzerland and on Black Forrest mountain sites.
The film footage has been recorded in the US and Europe and altered during post production process.
