The aesthetics of wounded earth


Bernd Uhde photographs the world from a helicopter in a vertical top view. It is not the virginity of untouched nature, but rather the cultural landscape designed by people that forms the exciting repertoire of motifs in his art. Coal heaps, heaps of ores or waste dumps form the leitmotifs of the photographs brought together in this album, which shine with a fascinating presence against the black background.


All groups of works reflect the artist's interest in shapes and colors, in structures and textures as well as in the basic principles of composition. Bernd Uhde's photographic position has rightly been repeatedly compared with the gaze of a painter.


His artistic achievement is to detect the extraordinary and mysterious and at the same time highly sensual by looking vertically at these places. The artist discovers “paintings” and these are visual finds whose aesthetic potential is only released and revealed through the distant view.


After the “White Album”, which sold out very quickly, the “Black Album” is the artist's fourth photo book published by Seltmann Publishers.
