Rather than showing all my images at once I selected some by a theme which will be switched in regular periods. Subscribe to my newsletter if you wish to receive a notification when a new theme is being published.

Ancient Ancestors of the Southwest

The nature and landscape of the Four Corners area is my photographic passion. I chose to move and live here in 2010. This allowed me to explore the vastness of the Colorado Plateu in a much more comprehensive way. I started to see things which were hidden to my eyes before.

Cliff dwellings, granaries, pictographs, petroglyphs were testimonies of ancient times. The locations of these findings showed how well chosen and thoughtful these ancient ancestors were. It provides us with an insight in how tough it must have been to make a living in these arid places, and yet, their rock art also demonstrates their sensibility for higher aspirations in life.

I hope my images will give you a glimpse of the spirituality of those times.
