IN LIMBO

2015/2019 Kenya/Germany

Brandl first came in contact with Kenya’s coast in 1997, in 2014 he moved more permanently to Africa. When he arrived on the south coast of Kenya, he felt overwhelmed by the sheer grandeur of the elements – air, water, earth, or: sky, horizon and the ground beneath your feet. The desire to paint arose, as well as the intention to separate form from feeling.

After an experimental process, where he took hundreds of photographs, Brandl finally succeeded in capturing his desire on photographic paper by using photos of the three elements simultaneously. Just like a painter adds layers of colours to a canvas Brandl, too, layered photographic elements onto his (digital) photographic paper – thus keeping each element in limbo.
