Wiepke Folkerts - Tata Steel Hoogoven 7&6 #2

Description
Wiepke Folkerts - Tata Steel Hoogoven 7&6 #2
Photo print (Fuji Professional DP II luster) mounted on polystyrene, with passe partout - Signed - no 2 of 15

The inspiration for my photo series on industrial landscapes comes from the pioneers in this field, Bernd and Hilla Becher. They were the first to photograph systematic industrial objects. Objects that are not designed to be beautiful, but are beautiful because of their functionality and show what they were created for.

Where Bernd and Hilla Becher mainly register and approach the objects from a distance, I still try to show their beauty by highlighting the form and configuration of the installations. To achieve that, I also light out parts of the landscape to make them more visible.

The configuration of an installation is created by the function it has for the industrial process that takes place in it and therefore has a unique character.
