This exhibition deals with our relationship to trees. It is an opportunity to rethink trees and to put aside what we know about them. Oxygen surrounds us like water surrounds fish. With every breath we take, we are connected to the seemingly airless space that trees create for us as a habitable world. I wanted to portray these natural beings intimately.

A self-taught photographer, Christoph started his own business in 1987 with a passion for working with people in various industries including music, cosmetics, recruitment, and marketing for international companies. Since 2009, Christoph deepened his photography practice with a philosophical approach. He is particularly interested in the principle of polarity. Opposites make the reality as we know it. It is with the help of these basic fundamentals — above and below, light and shadow or yin and yang — that we can perceive the material world. Christoph lives and works in Germany.
