Caspar Friedrich’s end of 19th century romanticists paintings aim to visualize the humanization of man, something that was to be found in nature. He creates a visual metaphor where the individuals blend into the natural landscape and their surroundings. Behind this stands the idea that there is a human sense of belonging to the cosmos.
In this project the discourse changes since the landscapes seen here are photographs hanging on the wall. We let ourselves be deceived by them thanks to their photographic persuasiveness achieved by the use of photography study spotlights. They are actually sceneries that hide something about our shallow society.
