A private home showing 2 of Steinhilber's images from the series 'Seascapes'...
Berthold Steinhilber's way of representing seascapes is very special and very beautiful. It is not 'loud' but gives you a feeling of immensity. This is his first show here. Enjoy!

Project: Seestücke - Seascapes
This is where the land ends. From here you can only look backwards, or to the wide horizon of the seas. The ever-changing waters of the ocean reminds of the deeper emotional states of human experience. From all the journeys to the sea I undertook, this metaphor remained in my mind that the waters of the oceans flow into one another and are connected to one another: everything is connected with everything. For this series I was inspired by the seascapes from the 19th century.
I first took sheltered coastal sections. Parallelly, I photographed the body of work "Finis terrae", pictures of the ends of land or a continent and the routes to these places along the coast, now part of the ‘Seascapes’ series. This project and the reflection on the subject of the sea will be continued.
