In my series Farmland (Ackerland) I visit the southern part of Lower Saxony. The agricultural landscape of my childhood and youth is now experiencing far-reaching structural and environmental changes. Previously family-run farms are increasingly being replaced by an industrially organised form of agriculture.
In my photographs I document a world, which in parts seems to have already ceased to exist. The juxtaposition of closeness and growing unfamiliarity raises the question of what it means for us if images with roots in our childhood and youth wait in vain to return, because the reality no longer provides an equivalent to them. Is this a loss?
