DAVID BREUN usually brings us transportation photography and is now presenting landscape photos. “I am part of an exhibition in Berlin at the really amazing location Rathenau Halls in the Treptow Ateliers (Wilhelminenhofstrasse 83–85, 12459 Berlin).” The photographer not only depicts the beauty of landscapes in high-res, large-scale photographs, he also shows structures, colors and intricate idiosyncrasies. “One can almost feel the elements and minerals which have shaped the Earth. The often rough and barren landscape shows a subtle interplay of colors which is why these seemingly inhumane natural settings always have a fascinating beauty inherent to them.” He also presented a video installation of the new project entitled ‘Elements’ in the exhibition ‘TERRA’.
Michele Caliari about his works : “In my photography, I draw inspiration from the scientific photography of the nineteenth century. During this period, the mountain was depicted with a directness which shows its beauty but also its raw brutality. We perceive the “beautiful mountains” at the same time with awe and fear. But, however personal the image of mountains may be for us – what ultimately remains is the absolute distance of nature.”
In the Treptow Ateliers, 25 artists, filmmakers, designers, photographers and curators of various ages from more than fifteen European and non-European countries work around the clock. Over the past ten years, a heterogeneous, constantly renewing community has emerged there, which promotes and supports one another precisely because of this strong diversity. This creative and cultural exchange, as well as networking with artists from other studio houses and cities, are an important part of the daily work of Berlin’s creative industry.
