Desert-like landscapes, wastelands devoid of vegetation, animals, and people -- the first series in the present volume was created in the Sahara, Iceland and on the Svalbard archipelago. Using the early photographic technique of the cyanotype, the artist transforms nature into a fascinating play of blue tones and alienated structures. Is this the earth in its original state or after the climate catastrophe? Man stands at a crossroads: can he avert the destruction of the planet, or will he transform the earth into a wasteland? This symbolic crux is juxtaposed with lively intersections in China, Japan, Russia, Israel, India, Greece, and Georgia, each of which is marked by typography. The black-and-white panoramas of urban life serve as a formal and thematic counterpoint to the abstract photographs of the first series and provide insight into the versatility of Jorg Heieck’s photographic work.
