  • About the work

Peter Koštrun is a master of landscape photography, refined selection of framing and light, as well as a specific, extremely subtle atmosphere that gives the impression as if his images capture something greater and immortal. The series Premonition is characterized not only by the diversity of format, content background as well as formal expression but also by the transition from the previously typically contemplative mood, towards an engaged force of expression. This is not established through a direct commentary or an illustration of concrete events, but through a radical change in the atmosphere imbued by the image. Feelings of discomfort, unrest, premonition, even threat are inscribed into the black-and-white photographs, most of which are coloured with red ink, as a commentary on society. The landscape, in which a kind of unearthly, spiritual dimension has so far been present, enveloping physical reality like a veil, has taken on a haunting and warning air.
