Terra Cognita

Thomas Wrede

Real Landscapes (2004-2012)

Inspired by the landscape and the light, in REAL LANDSCAPES Thomas Wrede created new worlds in model size. He places toy cars and plastic trees in natural surroundings and photographs them from just above ground level with a large format analogue camera. As a result, the smallest gestures become  grand and compelling: a replica of a grandiose idyll or a terrible disaster.
