Sense of Space

Balthasar Burkhard

NO TITLE

Since 1997 Balthasar Burkhard has been making aerial photographs. He photographs megacities such as Tokyo, Mexico City and Chicago - the proverbial "molochs" of modern civilisation. In addition he makes photographs of deserts: regions which, on the contrary, are not shaped by human activity. In this manner Burkhard sets cultural and natural structures over against each other, without seeking polarisation. Through their heavy, deep tones his photographs take on a comparable, massive stature. Yet in these almost sculptural bird's-eye views, details continue to command attention, right to the horizon.
