"The Calligraphy of Nature" is a photographic project that visually and philosophically explores the forms of free-flowing rivers. Meandering lines are among the oldest ornaments of all, they have already inspired the artists of the Neolithic Age. I explored the hypnotical beauty and fascination in the courses of the unstraightened rivers in the Altai (Russia) with a pro drone on 3 trips in 2017, 2018 & 2019). On a spiritual level, the river meanders show us that in the end, nature leads every path to its ultimate destination, no matter how winding and full of twists and turns it may be.

Artist's Statement: I love photography and I love digital imaging. But even more, I love authentic photography. Therefore, the images on this site are only slightly digitally adjusted (during the process of the RAW-conversion) to reflect my view of the scenery. My design elements are eye, light, time and perspective as well as the classical settings of the camera: focus, angle, shutter speed and aperture. I create my images at the shooting locations, not at the computer.
