Dark Winter

It was a relatively bright Saturday morning when I heard in the radio that this winter has been the darkest for a long time. And you can feel it. This lack of light creeping into your system to smother your vitality. I took my camera and found some places with just the right amount of blacks to respond to this dark winter. Churches, Subways, Underpasses. Outside the exceptional sun, inside the throbbing darkness.

Es war ein ziemlich heller Samstag, als ich im Radio hörte, dass dieser Winter der dunkelste seit einer langen Zeit sei. Und man kann das fühlen. Diesen Mangel an Licht, der in dein System kriecht und sich wie Mehltau auf die Lebenslust legt. Ich nahm die Kamera mit nach draussen und fand ein paar Orte mit ausreichend Schwarz, um diesem dunklen Winter gerecht zu werden. Kirchen, U-Bahnen, Unterführungen. Draussen ausnahmsweise mal Sonne, drinnen die pochende Dunkelheit.

One Comment on “Dark Winter

  1. There is currently a documentary series on Belgian television about believing in a certain city. That is recorded in black and white with a somewhat dark undertone. For black and white alone, it is worth looking at. But the content is also very well balanced.
