“The Tree hugging is over” is an ongoing series which, so far, explored various mountainous regions of western Austria & eastern Switzerland.
The Tree-Markers indicate a Land Owner’s property and trees thereof, by using various colours & signage. These trees are meant to be cut down for wood & environmental restoration-, as well as commercial purposes.
Markers and colours used are meant to be seen! The more intense & contrary a colour is, the greater the effect of the contrast to the corresponding backgrounds.
The images exhibited are part of a larger group of images of different colour groups. They have been photographed with ordinary negative film-material, creating a beautiful grain & colours.
