Looking at an ever-changing familiar landscape, the long-term project ROYGBIV (2o16-2020) focuses on the oblique and wistful feeling that occurs when I revisit my home in Austria. The series attempts to decipher what it means to feel connected and distant at the same time. Through a collection of memories and hopes, the personal relationship to a place develops, however, the visual surface remains the same.

ROYGBIV explores this a mbiguous connection to the landscapes and personalities that are part of my experience of place. In doing so, I use photography as a tool to create my own world of memory and document how this liminal space transforms with each visit.
The title is an acronym for the colors of the rainbow, a visual sensation that recurred throughout the many summers I spent at home. When looking at a rainbow, the impression of the colors depends on the position of the viewer, because the pattern changes slightly with each step. Therefore, no two people will ever see the same arc in the sky.
