Photography in a climate time

COPENHAGEN PHOTO FESTIVAL / Photography can capture nature, document it, but also process nature. Showcase the being, the exotic, the disappearing in a special way.

I have set out to write about Photographyet. And more precisely the relation of photography to natureone and the changes, which must be said to be one of the greatest and most pressing issues of our time.

Is it monstrous therefore I already on arrival to Copenhagen Photo Festival on Refshaleøen in central Copenhagen see the photographs with leaves and other plants? That I immediately take note of the natural motifs and disregard what does not evoke a natural sound? I see all the more the photographs in a special way, because I have focused on looking for the nature in them and looking for what the photograph has to say about nature. To spot something is also to decide to spot it. Already there, photography can draw our attention to something and not to anything else. If it can be transferred to elements other than the photograph itself, it will also mean that the photograph can help to tone the attention,. . .
