CULTIVATED SADNESS
Independent | photography | 2010

Well tidy and well cultivated .... but nice? The windows of the typical houses in german villages show at first sight a beauty, which is given in a sense of the order, but my question is if really they are achieving this wish of beauty or are they more the opposite of it.
These windows; sad and peculiarly homogeneous they are more vegetating his life of a sad reality then showing the pride of every good house owner. The flowers and curtains put like decoration looks like discouraged actors in a theater without auditorium. The exterior sight of these windows can give us an idea of the persons who live there. The "Cultivated Sadness" is a documentation of photos of a few windows of a specific village named Lambsheim of the south of germany taken in 2010 for the project "The paradox of ugliness".
