Magic moments

In search of the magical moment that should deepen the harmony in people, nature and culture.

There are atmospheric, dramatic moments in European and Saarland landscapes full of beauty and elegance that I want to show in the exhibition. The light shapes the landscape and gives it - often only for a brief moment - a special face. No fair weather photography. Through the power of nature, the emotional effect of the scenes should be directed directly to the viewer, because in our environment full of noise and hectic we should occasionally take time to pause and try to slow down this high pace a little. I would like my pictures to help.

Werner Richner (DE)

The intensity begins when time becomes unimportant. In this sense, my pictures should be perceived timelessly - detached from the zeitgeist and the authenticity of an era.
