All those Cages

All those Cages

some wise thoughts by the artist on his influences / inspiration

”I know that a lot of you are curious to get more information about the abandoned places in my photos and I receive a lot of questions about them.
There is a reason that I don’t give any though. I do love abandoned buildings, I see so much beauty in those places. Unfortunately, many people don’t.
I do act very respectful inside those places, but there are too many idiots out there that don’t behave like me.
I’ve seen so much vandalism, theft and other bad things happening to those buildings after they have become popular, that I will do all I can to protect those beauties.
Therefore, I don’t give any infos about the location (not even the country) or history about them since every little piece of info makes it easier for people to find it.
I’ll gladly help you with any info about all non-decay related shots, but there is no chance I tell anything about the decaying beauties. No exceptions.
Please respect that and don’t post any info in the comments, they will be deleted without warning.”

A.G – analogies 

I compare my work to that of a writer. He writes from what he remembers and his different impressions..

Bergwerk Ost '08

 ..in a way, a writer has the freedom to connect different thoughts, and this is the way I work with photography..

.. it is not a straight documentary but the details that are going together, they come from the real world and they exist.”

A.G – tendencies 

In former times, I had a long distance from what I was photographing and it didn’t matter if I was personally involved. But I think in the last years I have had a very strong relationship [with my subjects.] ..

..for example, with Formula 1, it took me four of five years to finish all the pictures, so I was really involved in the world.”

Bridge Genealogy \\ Meghalayas Living Bridge

In the wettest region of the world , Meghalaya India – even if it sounds impossible – people build bridges for generations using the roots of trees on each side of the river

because of the high vegetation due to the rainfalls , those roots may form even 30 meters surface and withstand an average amount of people crossing at the same time.

The extracurricular that you can notice of  people living in Meghalaya for generations, is the passion for transmitting this knowledge of nature – to the youngest ones in order to continue through the years this – owned by them- tradition.
