Grüsse von dort

For this series of collages we used fragmented picture postcards. Picture postcards are used to send greetings from one person to another. At the same time they are the photographic evidence of the senders temporary whereabouts, often with a little triumph.
We rearranged these fragments in a seemingly haphazard way, yet the alignment of the horizons indicates a clear intention to create the impression of landscape. Landscape however from a time and place, that don’t exist and where no one could possibly ever have been. Let alone take pictures from there.
