Exhibitions, Germany, 1 January 1970 - 1 January 1970
It was Caspar David Friedrich, who first depicted a sole human being – tiny against the dark background of the open Sea in his well-known painting «Monk by the Sea» (1808-1810).
Here, it becomes clear at first sight, how small we are in comparison to theenormous power of nature. Also the new series «HIGH LIGHT» by the German photographer Peter Schloer (born 1964) makes it evident, how strong nature is and how it controlsour life. We see beautiful meteorological phenomena found by the eye of Schloers camera at the island «La Palma».
In contrast to Caspar David Friedrich, Schloer doesn´t show any human – because it is the spectator, who now takes the place of Friedrich´s monk – alone in silent conversation with nature.
