In the narrative image series “Under An Open Sky”, I stage a fictional village that is being surprised by fantastic events. In doing so, I illuminate the relationship between people and nature and the relations within society.

The photographs show the figures in the lonely moment of discovery. Lonely because the initial confrontation with the emotions always remains one’s own, no matter how many people surround one. Thus the discovery of the outside world also becomes one of the self – reflected in the images.
