Georg Parthen

Work from the series Landschaften (landscapes)

"Landschaften is an ongoing work about the relationship of reality and its image. Digitally altered or constructed photographs of implausible landscapes.
For the project I take photos and detailled photographic studies from which I later create images that range from slightly altered to complete digitally composed photographic images. Through retouchting, digital lighting and/or montage I create interpretations of beautiful yet disturbing landscapes. It is important that viewers cannot point their finger on the manipulations but at the same time feel arising doubts whether the world shown on the images can be trusted."
