Most of the topics of my Aerial Views project, which I have been following since 2010, deal with the intervention and often also the destruction of our environment by humans.
This new aerial photo series about the Bavarian Forest, the first national park in Germany founded in 1970, shows nature that is largely left to its own devices again, true to the park’s motto “NATUR NATUR SEIN LASSEN“ - "Let nature be nature".
The nature zone of the Bavarian Forest National Park is thus one of the very few places in geographically divided and densely populated Germany where, in the sense of human non-intervention, at least secondary wilderness should be possible again, especially in spite of the age of the Anthropocene, in which there is no completely uninfluenced nature anymore.
In order to ensure the preservation of these natural zones in the Bavarian Forest, I would like to support the protection of the Bavarian Forest Nationalpark.A share of 10% of each print sale of this series goes to the Junior Ranger National Park association, whose work and idea consists of wanting to convey an awareness of the protection and preservation of the emerging forest wilderness to children from the region in a playful way.
