until 22.12. | #3636ARTatBerlin | Robert Morat Galerie shows from 21. October 2022 (Vernissage: 20.10.) the last exhibition Cold Mountain by the photographer Michael Lange.
Over a period of six years, the photographer Michael Lange undertook extensive journeys to various regions of the French Alps. There he created a collection of impressive, meditative landscape images, between light and dark, silence and storm. On the occasion of the publication of the book on the series by Hartmann Books in 2021, Stefan Fischer wrote in the Süddeutsche Zeitung:
“The heaviest and the lightest come together in the mountains. Here the massive, seemingly immovable rock, piled thousands of metres high, chapped and mighty, sometimes covered by additional loads of snow weighing several tonnes. And there, wisps of clouds, driven together by the wind and immediately blown apart again, without place and without support. (…) Lange’s photographs from the French Alps are extraordinary. Because they sound out the border region between the just visible and the invisible. Because they capture the moment when the first structures are just emerging from the darkness of the night or from the thicket of clouds – or, conversely, when a curtain is drawn and a last fleeting glimpse is possible of what will be completely hidden a second later.”
Michael Lange (*1953 in Heidelberg) became known for meditative investigations of landscapes. The series “Wald” (Forest) was published by Hatje Cantz in 2012 and made Michael Lange internationally known as a photographic artist. Just as in the follow-up project “Fluss” (River), which was also published by Hatje Cantz in 2015, Lange is concerned with the search for stillness and an emotional relationship with nature. The publication of “Cold Mountain” now available from Hartmann Books concludes this trilogy of landscape projects. Michael Lange lives and works in Hamburg.
Vernissage: Thursday, 20 October 2022, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
