Water is everywhere. It flows along the line of least resistance to find its way to the
ocean, where it comes and goes in tides and waves, evaporates to the sky, and reappears as
precipitation. Water possesses no specific shape by itself, but is formed by the physical
forms and forces surrounding it.
When moving water hits an obstacle, it becomes ejected into the air, temporarily forming
incredible sculptures that are almost unperceivable by the human eye. This ejection
generally leads to inclusion of air into the water, and billions of small air bubbles will
result in a foamy aspect of the expelled water.
Although this process happens all the time at uncounted locations on our planet, no splash
will look like the other. This series intends to show the astonishing beauty of this
common phenomena, emphasizing the enormous variety of forms generated by these natural
elements and forces.
Born 1958 in Freiburg, Germany, I was educated as a biologist and worked in Research and Development in Germany, France and – for the last 16 years – Denmark. During all this time, nature photography was my predominant and private hobby. At January 2015, I decided to “go public” with my photographs, showing them at exhibitions and participating in contests.
