PHOTOKINA IN COLOGNE, GERMANY
The photo festival Horizonte in Zingst, Germany presents Gerd Ludwig's show "Peace on Earth or Earth to Pieces" at the Photokina convention in Cologne, Germany. The exhibition of 16 large-format prints explores the magical beauty and quiet dignity of nature both preserved and when exploited by mankind. With irritating beauty, these destroyed landscapes provoke introspection to one's own relationship with our earth. Also featured as part of the Horizonte photo festival presentation, is an excerpt from an interview shot by foto.tv, a German-based online video company.
