One River and its surroundings, as they appear in and around TFMA.


I’m a German-American who grew up both in New England (Massachusetts) and Freiburg, Germany, the gateway to the Black Forest. Both places are my home, and I’ve lived my whole life missing whichever place I wasn’t in. My landscape photography is an exploration and meditation of home, longing, and loss. The Portugese have in their language the word “Saudade”, which embodies the feeling of nostalgia for a thing which has never happened - or did, but which will never happen again. My most successful shots carry this feeling across - a beautiful, bitter-sweet stillness and sadness, searching for the place that will finally make me feel like I am where I should be.
