Wolfgang Bartels presents « Between Mysticism and Abstraction »
Taken on a journey to West-Greenlandic Disko-Bay, the remains of a shattered iceberg land on the lava beach of Disko Island and in the short moment of motionlessness result in the grace of a Japanese calligraphy. In the background a rolling in wave is breaking, becomes blurred to an abstract shape as if created by a drypoint etching. The tension is generated by the contrast of these elements comprising mysticism and abstraction in one picture. Robert Haeusser called this photograph a masterpiece.
