I love the sea. I love wide, open landscapes that give room to breathe. I love the vastness of space of wide, empty beaches. In this environment humans are tiny creatures. And the tiny figures should remind us that we are only a weak, minute organism on this still so beautiful and vulnerable planet. In fact, we all too often forget that we humans are so weak on the planet earth with its grandiose and powerful nature.

An interview about this project has been published recently in the Chinese print magazine PHOTOWORLD, Vol. 415, 07/2016, pp 48-55 (Title: Bernd Walz: To Know How Small Humans Are In Minimalism Photography).
