Behind the glass
Photo series and photo book.
«Behind the Glass» offers a glimpse into the harmony and struggle of life within controlled environments. Plants press against misted glass, mirroring humanity’s yearning for a better world. As leaves touch the surface, the very essence of interconnectedness is laid bare. This series is a testament to our shared responsibility. It echoes the call to shift our relationship with nature—a resonant chord in our journey to safeguard the planet.
Prints are available in limited editions printed on high-quality archival museum paper.
Trees behind the glass are willing to escape, but the conditions of the outside
world are not suitable for their life. The leaves of the plants touching the
misted glass resemble the fingers of people willing to leave this artificial
environment which is at the same time their home and the key to their
life. The species that grow in greenhouses are usually not able to survive
in the climate where the greenhouse stands. Observing orangeries
I hope most of the Earth’s plants survive facing climate changes and
global warming. People should change their attitude toward nature because
ruining the ecosystem is much easier than reviving it. We would not be able
to build a greenhouse for a whole planet.
