- Fascinating aerial photos of industrial landscapes reminiscent of abstract painting
- Beautifully printed high gloss photographs, elegantly bound in black linen with embossed lettering
Bernd Uhde photographs the world from the helicopter in a vertical top view. It is not the virginity of untouched nature, but the cultural landscape created by humans that makes up the exciting repertoire of motifs in his art. Coal heaps, ore or dumping heaps form the leitmotifs of the photographs brought together in this album, which shine in a fascinating presence against the black background.
The artist’s interest in shapes and colors, in structures and textures and in the basic principles of composition is reflected in all of the work groups. Bernd Uhde’s photographic position has rightly been compared with the eye of a painter.
His artistic achievement is to find the extraordinary and enigmatic – and at the same time highly sensual – by looking vertically at these places. The artist discovers ‘paintings’ and these are visual finds, the aesthetic potential of which is only released by the distant view and reveals itself.
