Living in an “Area Of Outstanding National Beauty” is something that changes one’s inner and outer perspective. Gone are the temptations of a city life.
Everything is reduced and eventually enhanced to a new relationship between the human being and nature. Experiencing this completely different way of living initially was a shock to my body and
mind – above all in a foreign country with a different language. So this series is an ongoing attempt to get to know the rural countryside that surrounds me and to witness the change in my own
perception with time. The degree of belonging, if you will. There are layers and layers of watching, layers of understanding and recognizing, that countryside at the same time is the way people
live and talk and think. An experience of a stranger on her way to become an insider.
