"Das Pixel der Erde" - Einladung zur Einzelausstellung vom 20.- 31.Oktober 2014, VIENHUES, Viersen.
Die Erzeugung nachhaltiger und gesunder Lebensmittel, Wirtschaften im Einklang mit der Natur, Förderung der Artenvielfalt sowie aktiver Klima- und Umweltschutz sichern unsere Lebensgrundlagen und erhalten die vielfältige Kulturlandschaft am Niederrhein. Gründe genug also, diese Landschaft einmal anders zu zeigen. Mit Bildern, die durch ihre ungewöhnlichen Kontraste, Farben und Perspektiven die Besonderheiten und die Charakteristik dieser regionalen Landschaftsform und Quelle besonderer Lebensmittel hervorheben. Ästhetischer Purismus im Dienst einer intakten Landwirtschaft, dem Rückgrat jeder Gesellschaft.Grund genug übrigens auch, diese Fotografien erstmals eben nicht in einer Galerie oder einem Museum zu präsentieren, sondern dort, wo Frische und Regionalität wichtige Qualitätsmerkmale sind und wo solcherart Lebensmittel verkauft werden: natürlicherweise also in einem besonderen Biomarkt.

Will stay or leave the red? Now’s the day and now’s the hour: how Scotland will decide today?
"Edina! Scotia’s darling seat!All hail thy palaces and tow’rs,Where once beneath a Monarch’s feet,Sat Legislation’s sov’reign pow’rs!From marking wildly-scatt’red flow’rs,As on the banks of Ayr I stray’d,And singing, lone, the ling’ring hours,I shelter in thy honour’d shade.”(Robert Burns)
