the series of wolken (2013) recurs to the series created in 2002 and are further results from a long-term fascination with clouds, their movements, structure/texture, and their potentially infinite variety of forms. shot from the plane on various trips, the photos especially focus on so-called stratus clouds, a category of clouds that usually appears rather flat, hazy and featureless. their visual quality as seen from above may imply micro and macro structures at the same time thus potentially deceives the viewer's perception.
