Naturbeton, a photo essay

natur:beton, German for 'organic concrete', connects apparent opposites of nature and man-made structures.

This photo essay is the kick-off for the new photographic collective natur:beton, a photographic exploration of life in urban decay.

On a macroscale it adresses the complex relation that modern kind has with nature and how deeply both are actually entwined, even in urban space. But natur:beton also examines the flexibility of nature, and that there is a limit to what humans, themselves a product of nature, can achieve in taming or manipulating the environment.

And as a paradox by itself the series shows beauty where it is not to be expected or at least not obvious.
