“There’s some special light in the woods,” photographer Wim Cox tells the transatlantic diablog.
Born in 1938 and then moving to Cologne in 1961, Cox still only shoots analogue photos. Such as for his series of pictures taken at Cologne’s Grüngürtel. A large park, being built in the 1920s and forming a circle around the town.
Watched from afar Cox’ photos look like impressionistic paintings. Which comes from his special technique of shaking the camera while shooting. Those photos almost create a 3-dimensional effect.
“I see the whole and the detail. Or the detail in the whole,” says Cox.
