The interest of Markus Schroll photographic series focuses on my particular way of understanding the duality natural and artificial world. Roads, woods, pieces of grass, tree trunks appear metaphorically in my photographic compositions as the last ghosts of the real world. I select natural elements wich I decontextualize in an artificial environment provoking unexpected and strange situations. The resulting images are not photo montages, but rather desired world scenes created and realized at the studio. There is not a digital treatment, light, scenery, instant are captured in the real moment, in the act of shooting the picture.
Photographer is just a random designer of materials which put them together in a built scenary. I combine in my photographie the studio work and the travel report.
