What could be better than spending a night together by the fire? The embers radiate warmth. Tea or mulled wine from a sooty pot warms from the inside.
The campfire has a magical attraction. It is the place where stories are told and where experiences are passed on from generation to generation.
All the constraints of everyday life dissolve. In the funk, imagination shows its power. Dancing shadows and the movement of embers create ghostly images. Didn’t a couple in love dance around the handle of the jug just a moment ago? Did you also see into which hole the spark flew?
The wood disappears like time. Fire, embers and ashes are the elements of the night.
I exhibit this motif and nine other photos as part of the Grevenbroich art showcase at Hoffmann: Die Optik. and look forward to a visit.
