When the snow falls

EN NOIR – ET BLANC

 

When the snow falls

Pictures from a diary, happening by chance.

A small clipping of the big picture.

 

Whatever forms the basis of the phenomena in our atmosphere – they remind me of stories in a thunderstorm ambiance.

I don’t know if it was actually snowing.

 

 

EN NOIR – ET BLANC – magic, water, mountains, or black rock faces – contrasts just like light and darkness or life and death. Their common denominator is the demand for the radical, also the expression of limits and protest. It has been dark for a long time… the windows are foggy and you’re asleep. The world behind glass. The sky dark. Us in the middle inside.

 

Through the day into the night – see the light to be free – for eternity.

This picture series was inspired by the lyrics of „Paint It, Black“ by the Rolling Stones.

When the day blackens

art photography – by peter gartmann

 

When light turns dark,

when the day blackens,

dark and pale contours seem to vibrate;

a veil of secrecy shrouds it all.

 

 

Most of the time in our lives, we move through thick fogs.

There are signposts, but who put them there?

Someone who really knows or just pretends to know the way?

Or could it be that we put them up ourselves?

 

We create demons for ourselves. The demons are in our thoughts, our dreams, our fantasies. They are traces of our consciousness. Thoughts we cannot explain.

 

At the end, we’re alone. It seems as if we humans divest ourselves of the colourful, resplendent rainbow of life.

 

I’m not quite sure how the pictures come about, and why they are what they are. It happens just as if I had not contributed anything or even been there. They are so close to me, but so extrinsic as well.

 

Many people have someone else inside of them, and are not aware of it.
