Umwelt, depicts my personal journey through my environment in Switzerland and France. The German definition of environment (Umwelt) mentions that an environment is everything that surrounds a person, but also influences one. Using photography as my visual language, I evoke a dialogue between natural and urban environments: the pure and the manufactured, attempting to reveal their often hidden beauty -the dialogue being part of it. Umwelt allows me to express my fondness of nature and explore my interest of urban architecture, and how they relate to each other. Furthermore, I intend to photograph the city as a landscape, and nature as architecture. My work not only questions the natural and the manufactured, but also reconnects me with my childhood memories.
