A photographic journey on Sylt by Alexander von Wiedenbeck
Over the years, I discovered an island that is able to offer much more than reports on television or in glossy magazines are only too happy to convey about Sylt. From quiet, remote and almost magical places to the usual hotspots, but devoided from people, allowed the natural spectacle of lights and shadows to unfold completely freely – without any distraction. The WATTENRUH exhibition and the associated exhibition catalogue, the „Watthof Tagebuch“, are a photographic hodgepodge that not only shows the essentials and the magic of a unique island, but through its sometimes extensive panorama photographs also allows the viewer to really get into the scenario and immerse into this incredible peace and quietness.
The Exhibition with 28 selected photographs shown in July 2022 in Westerland on Sylt
was funded by Sylter Kunstfreunde e.V. as part of their INSELKÜNSTLER 2022 project.
