German photographer Robert Schlaug has a wide and varied body of work that explores the area where humans and landscape intersect. Limited Area, one of his recent projects, shifts the viewer’s standard perception of landscape by stretching the image and creating linear striped gradients of the landscape’s natural palette. According to Schlaug, the digitally manipulated photos deal with the limits of everyday human experience.
“In a time when one considers the possibilities of humanity for unlimited, the individual human experiences its limits and its limitations in daily life on a daily basis,” he says. “Even our thoughts and our imagination constantly finds its limits. We often feel the narrowness of the space physically, too. My images try to put all these experiences visually.”
