Daydream & Nightwalk

In the book "The Life of Plants: A Metaphysics of Mixture" by the Italian philosopher Emanuele Coccia, I came across the idea that oxygen surrounds us like water surrounds fish.

With every breath we take we are connected to the seemingly airless space that trees create for us as a habitable world.

I wanted to portray these natural beings in an intimate way. Expressive branches and trunks, which remind me partly of human torsos and partly of trumpets sounding loudly from the ground, were my first inspiration. The trees seem so alive to me as if they were speaking a secret language. With the help of multiple exposures, I took photographs directly on site, which correspond to my perception of the subtle sounds of nature's organisms.
