Our places to be: locations where a mixture of beauty and decay leads to a new dimension of visual seduction. A combination of human footprints and the force of nature results in our own poetic view on pieces of a sometimes concealed reality.
In our projects, we use our cameras not so much as picture-taking devices though more as data-collecting devices. Our work consists of composite imagery, where photographs are made and not taken.
By digitally mixing each others photos, we create multiple layered artworks which show new colors and perspectives. We try to find the point where reality and fiction come together in a new magical world.
Although the essence of our series is based on deliberate choices, it is the process of unguided manipulation that characterizes the creation of our artworks.
On our way to create our artworks we can't resist taking single shots as well. Some kind of photography addiction is overwhelming us every now and then. So apart from the series of artworks, you'll find our favorite single shots on this website as well.
Currently we are working on four projects:
* AISLES: fantasy paths to somewhere.
* BAORI: forgotten Indian heritage put into new perspectives.
* TREES: showcase of the hidden colors and power of the emperors of nature.
* WORKX: places of work which are now at the mercy of natural elements.
