Says Berlin-based photographer, Georg Parthen, on his ongoing series, Landschaften: ‘It is about the relationship of reality and its image, featuring digitally altered or constructed photographs of implausible landscapes. For this project, I take photos and detailed photographic studies from which I later create images that range from slightly altered to complete digitally composed photographic images. Through retouchting, digital lighting or montage, I create interpretations of beautiful yet disturbing landscapes. It is important that viewers cannot point their finger at the manipulations, but at the same time feel arising doubts whether the world shown on the images can be trusted’.
