The last few years showed us what it means to be thrown back on being alone. Places of longing were now to be discovered outside. Here we felt liberated, felt the experience of community, of nature, vegetation and breathing air as a creative refreshment and inspiration. The group exhibition shows 5 photographic positions on the theme. Ute Behrend transposes everyday objects with her series BACK TO NATURE. Valentin Goppel, series BETWEEN THE YEARS (among others VGH Fotopreis 2022, LEICA OSKAR BARNACK NEWCOMER AWARD 2022) shows his generation „Corona“ outside, where you no longer had to be alone. Ellen Korth tells in poetic pictures about her daily WALKS (photographs and book) in nature. Josef Wolfgang Mayer portrayed café guests at the longed-for morning „drink to go“ and conversation on the wall in front of the closed place and Nikita Teryoshin found with his series ANIMAL ESCAPE PLAN (photographs and book) touching images of animals that were rescued from the slaughterhouse and have now found a home – outside.
