‘Time is an ocean that ends on the beach’ Bob Dylan
Water is poetry. Sometimes hard and sharp, other times soft and elegant. Werner wandered along the coasts of Europe. Sometimes it was rough, then calm or everything in between. Yet the washing water always touched its inseparable companion: the land.
A perpetual motion of attraction and withdrawal, a flirtatious waterline. Fascinated, he looks at the water and documents what it does to people. Beaches and shores that seem to offer people time, needed to come to themselves. He immortalizes their moments of reflections.
Reflections that create subdued emotions, bring cheerful relation to life or evoke melancholy memories.
