concept – Sakura and Magnoria

“Sakura” in Japanese means “cherry blossom”. The cherry blossom is a very important subject for the Japanese culture and it is my favourite flower. These works express my longing for Japan. From January to May daily, I photographed cherry and magnolia trees in my place of residence, Düsseldorf. My documentation encompasses the time from the cherry flower’s first bud to the last falling petal. I put together hundreds of photographs into one image to show the temporal compression.
