Photographs of the Baltic Sea

For ten years, the photographer Joachim Lindner traveled to a total of seven countries on the Baltic Sea and walked through several kilometers of coastline in order to capture the beauty of the Baltic Sea through a tiny hole on 4/5 inch slide film with his Robert Rigby Pinhole Camera. Deceleration and a return to traditional photography were the central concerns.

144 camera obscura shots confirm the photographer's intention, the image effect is underlined by subtle and emotional texts by his daughter, the author Lisa Lindner. “Consistent movement. A gentle flow of waves plays around the stones that have been polished smoothly over thousands of years, round bodies in the sign of time. Everything is in motion and at the same time exudes an impenetrable calm. The sea is a calm visitor today.”

Dull colors, blurred contours. The roots of photography can be seen in the blurring of the images; calm and concentration on the essential served Joachim Lindner as the fundamental design elements of his work. It is a special kind of backward movement. The photographer does not completely forego digital possibilities, but rather succeeds in the symbiosis of traditional and modern photography. All motifs were created with the Robert Rigby Pinhole Camera on 4/5 inch slide film and then digitally processed. The works in the book are an interplay between the photographic beginning and the latest digital technology.

This resulted in 144 extraordinary recordings far away from pressure and external influences. Patience was key to the project. With a lot of patience and excitement, the authors Joachim Lindner and Lisa Lindner managed to make the uniqueness of the environment tangible in their illustrated book and to sensitize those around them to it. Image and text form a homogeneous composition.

“Long Time… Photographs of the Baltic Sea” is a homage to traditional photography, to the peace and serenity in the creative process.
