Scenes from Lower Bavaria

There are certainly more spectacular landscapes on this planet as Lower Bavaria. This part of Bavaria has vast agriculturally used rolling hills in the west, and the river plain of the Danube marks a natural border to the mountains of the Bavarian forest in the east. The project title is modified from the title of the film "Hunting Scenes from Lower Bavaria" (Jagdszenen aus Niederbayern) directed 1969 by Peter Fleischmenn. The presented images do not attempt a landscape documentation but rather pick landscape scenes suited for a strongly reduced presentation with almost mathematically composed image elements. This approach creates an aesthetics of bleakness and images of haunting silence.

The project "Scenes from Lower Bavaria" has been described and featured in DODHO online MAGAZINE. Link: https://www.dodho.com/scenes-from-lower-bavaria-by-bernd-walz/
