We’re diggin‘ a grave in the moonlight / We’re diggin‘ a grave where we lay / Hopin‘ the sun will never come up / And there’ll be no compromise again (Micah P. Hinson)

    nice B&W vision here. I quite like these two together.

  2. sherri sagt:

    the top image feels sinister, but maybe because of the song lyrics:-) the second one looks like a great place for lunch.

    I like the second well for the graphic aspect of the slopes, beautiful in contrast, cheer!.

    That empty back yard, the ominous black trailer being pulled away, all of the empty tables with no one near to see or hear–the buried actions, thoughts, and hidden hopes and dreams–we want the darkness to cover them and then to let them lie forever. It’s the human condition. Excuse my over-analysis. I really like the photos!

    oh my gosh Florian, the one with the clothes hanger looks soooo scary!! like the woman who once hung her children’s laundry has died alone, a long long time ago (oh no, not me, i never lost control, you’re face to face with the man who sold the world) i love you and i love your black and whites, but these two go down in history, as post apocalyptic love songs… xoxoxoxoxox

  6. Ordinary scenes look so gritty when you photograph them. Superb!

  8. Love the black and white tones in this!

  9. michèle sagt:

    Very aesthetic photos, beautiful, little frightening. The scenes could appear in a film.

  10. Excellent and very poetic series my friend.

    Diggin‘ a grave in the moonlight. Great. But a bit frightening ! Are you a dangerous man ?

  13. Turnbill sagt:

    I love the small ghosts in both these images. You have a wonderful eye.

    Dark moments. Nobody will appear again in these places. Where did they flee if not the death? The definitive issue.
    A dark world indeed.
    Today in Vitória it’s raining. That could be nothing, just normal. But today the sky is closed as we say in brazilian portuguese (céu está fechado). And I feel like I’m in the other side of the ocean and other side of equator. Closer to your thoughts, Florian.

    the first one breathe of emptines (despite the cars) …it’s something with that clothes-line and that old building. got an overall good feeling to it.

  16. John Angulat sagt:

    Great pair of images. I’m especially drawn to the first. The solitary item on the clothesline, seemingly left behind by what appears to be a departing vehicle and trailer.
    So nicely done!

    auf dem wäscheständer hängt der umhang eines geistes. dieser sitzt jetzt nackend und wartet bis sein mäntelchen trocken ist. spooky.

    viele grüße

    both are very powerful images, especially when viewed together. The top one is a cracking shot, one of my favourites for sure
