On Starlings

The series On Starlings explores the motif of change through a love story in times of loss.
 Visually, in writing, as well as symbolically, I focus on facets of personal change, leaving comfort zones, threatening diseases, but also hope, daring, and overcoming. The photographs were taken during stays in France in the Grand Est and Bourgogne-Franche-Comté regions, in addition to a potash mining landscape in northern Germany, in parallels to the writing and recording processes of the music album of the same name, which will be released later this year. In both the photo book and the exhibition context, colour photographs interact with abstract black-and-white photographs, as well as with the notes and lyrics of my song The Change of Us, which thematically echoes and complements the moods of the series, and holds a key role on the album.
