My Biomorph-Series is about transformative processes of nature. Nature permanently shapes its structures and organisms. It is alive. It grows in round, soft and curved shapes. It is organic, intertwined and crooked. Biomorph translates as: shaped and characterized by natural forces of life. The series refers to natures dynamics and changes.
The Biomorph series contains many motifs from nature. Here I am impressed by the shapes, colors and the organic confusion. The multiple exposures support these impressions and I find that this represents the change, growth, and movement of life. It appears like a time-lapse image. At the same time, the original contour blurs, the characteristic shape dissolves and can be questioned. Furthermore my color design of these images can differ from the natural look.
The multiple exposures create multi-layered images. Viewing them remains lively, because it will take longer to see everything at once.
The "Biomorph" series is a by-product, a spin-off of my Bauformen series.
With my camera, a Nikon DSRL, I can make multiple exposures of subjects. I often work with triple exposures here. During the composition, I try to achieve certain overlaying effects. It is not easy to implement, but it comes closer to „drawing with light“ again. I can merge different motifs or image sections into one image. Different apertures and exposure times can also be used. Nevertheless, a certain random element remains. Most of the time I can only reasonably judge the results on the screen at home. This reminds me of the analog times. I think it makes digital work a little more exciting and not so predictable.
I only receive one digital file in RAW format per triple exposure. In post-processing I want to make the file ready for printing. This includes coloring as well as minor adjustments to optimize the images.
