Dates2019 - 2020
In my eponymous work after the song of John Milton „Paradise Lost“, the human being as such is no longer visible. Only his traces remain. Human beings are not able to exercise control anymore, because they replace themselves with the technology they have created.
Not a single person will be depicted on the pictures. People build a tendency to not meet anymore, so the question left is: is it technology that is supposed to be the “one“ to “restore us and regain the bliss1 ful seat“ . With technology it is easier for us to make a living, it saves us time and ressources. It also distracts us from what is really important: connecting with people face to face. In these days there is a distance between individuals (as part of a collective) that I seeked to depict with the emptiness of spaces.
I captured all images with a Pentax6x7, an analog medium format camera. It was essential to me to use the available light sources to have the most neutral results. All pictures have a quote by John Miltons Paradise Lost.
