Marius Schultz – ‘A conversation with Nature’

Marius Schultz’s timeless story ‘A conversation with Nature’ – watching the daily world in searching for the links that get things together in a circle of life.

“Many of the images were taken in the same place — practically in my backyard — but at different times, in different seasons, over the course of years and years (the projected started in 2005). I have always been fascinated by trees, water and people to engage with the fundamental wholeness of nature.”

“My first images were at a local lake at night. It was early spring. There were some cows on the field. I shot a whole roll of film. Afterwards I was very disappointed with the result. It didn´t turn out the way I saw it. That was 40 years ago.

Today I have complete different approach. Today I wonder more about the “Why?” Why did I go out of night to shoot? What kind of mystery where I hoping for? What was I thinking? It was my first roll of film. I could have no expectations.

The answer was there all in front of me: I chose nature – not the city lights, I chose night, not day. I chose spring, not winter – and so on. I needed a camera to observe the essence of nature, and start a conversation. I need the conversation to understand myself, the world, our universe.”
