A handful of dust
- Florian Schwarz's photographs take the reader to observatories in the most remote places in the world, linking the expanse of space with the people living there
Knowledge of the universe is growing, but human existence is increasingly being called into question. This paradox is the leitmotiv of ‘A handful of dust’, a photographic research project by Florian Schwarz. Over a period of four years, he travelled to observatories in the most remote places in the world. He insightfully links the distant view into the expanse of space with close-up views of the people who live in the surroundings of these institutes. He covers a spectrum from the dusty, bleak ends of this world to the centre of the universe, where our center is also situated – since we, as the most recent research has shown, consist of up to 97% stardust.
