The work of photographer Peter Oehlmann explores one of the major themes of contemporary life – the relationship between man and nature. He focuses on man‘s appropriation of the environment and the consequences arising from it. In his finely crafted photographs, the artist shows us monumental landscapes, formed over countless years by the forces of nature, apparently defying all change. Oehlmann is concerned with land as a dwindling resource as well as with changing ideas of ideal landscapes, with the portrayal of (urban) landscapes as a political statement or the relationship between landscape and home. Through his vision of nature as threatened and vanishing, the artist broadens the notion of landscape.
